  • Winemaker Notes High in the hills of the Corbières, in a stunning corner of south west France, Château Trillol has been the Sichel family property since 1990. At 400m above sea level, the vineyard is located in two of the Corbières terroirs: Termenès and Quéribus. Here the local grape varieties, Grenache, Syrah and Carignan (harvested by hand), result in an authentic wine that is packed with character and a strong sense of place.
  • Tasting Notes The intense color with deep purple highlights heralds in a wine with depth and complexity. Expressive, frank nose exuding aromas of red fruit, redcurrant, blackcurrant and a hint of oak. The front-of-palate is silky, evolving over the top of discreet but well-structured tannins. Great freshness, prolonging the aromatic expression.

  • Vineyard Currently, Trillol's vineyard covers two distinct terroirs. The first, the silica-rich, Terroir de Termenès is located high up in the hills. The second, Terroir de Qéribus, is in the middle of the valley that surrounds the village of Cucugnan. Average age of vines is 35 years, with a surface area of 40 Ha
  • Vinification The grapes are totally de-stemmed and then fermented for 6 to 8 days at 30 to 32oC. Maceration lasts for 30 to 40 days with daily pumping over. The vats are run off and the press wines separated from the free run juice. This is followed by the malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (2 to 5 years old - new barrels are avoided) and racking takes place every 3 to 4 months. Trillol is lightly fined but not filtered before bottling.
