Le Temps des Cerises La Peur du Rouge

Le Temps des Cerises La Peur du Rouge


Country: France

Region: Languedoc

Grapes: Chardonnay, Clairette

Vintage: 2019

Based deep in the Languedoc in hills just north of Béziers, Alex Prüfer has built a reputation as an alchemist of sorts, working with vineyards in one of the hottest and driest parts of France to create delicate and ethereal wines steeped in rugged charm.

La Peur du Rouge is Half of Axel’s Chardonnay and Clairette with the Chardonnay macerated in whole bunches fo 10 days before being pressed off and combined with the Clairette juice. A generous and finely woven wine with ripe stone fruits, hints of nougat and spice and chalky limestone minerality.
