Review PASCAL CHALON 'LA PETITE OURSE' COTES DU RHONE 2016
PASCAL CHALON 'LA PETITE OURSE' COTES DU RHONE 2016
"Pascal is not very interested in appellations and so he calls his wines merely Côtes-du-Rhône. The vineyards have been owned by Pascal's grandmother and then his father. Until 2002 the grapes were delivered to a few domaines (we won't named those too very well know domaines here). In 2000 the first wines were made unofficially in his grandmother`s house and in 2012 the wines are still made here. Since 2011 the vineyards have been certified biodynamique but Chalon wants to leave this certification and the vineyards have (since 2012) "only" been certified agriculture biologique. He still uses some biodynamic methodes but will not use one of the two obligatory preparations "501", silicium. Pascal says that his soil will be out of balance by using it. 3,5 ha. in Visan 6,5 ha. in Tulette “La Petit Ourse” 55% Syrah, 38% Grenache, 5% Carignan, 2% Mourvèdre."
Variety: Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvedre
