The wine goes well with meat dishes, vegetable snacks and cheeses.
The dress is intense ruby red with hints of pomegranate. In the nose there is a whirlwind of aromas of skin, tobacco and licorice, accompanied by berry staccato blueberries and blackberries with a splash of notes of lavender, rosemary and thyme. The wine combines the taste balance of juicy berries and fruits with well-tempered tannins, has moderate acidity, multi-layered, with a long storage potential. Decantation is recommended.
History of wine
Kals is a village at the foot of the Pyrenees in French Roussillon (or in Northern Catalonia). These are old and sometimes ancient vines of 40-120 years. This is a constant rivalry of two winds - a dry, cold Tramontana, which blows from the mountains, and Marena, a warm, humid wind from the Mediterranean Sea. Thanks to this, in Kalsa the temperature is 3-4 degrees lower than in Perpignan, located 20 km away, and excellent ventilation for the vines. Kals is a geologist's dream. This is the meeting place of two mountain ranges - the shale Pyrenees and the limestone Corbières. This is a brown slate. This is a black slate. These are gravel deposits. These are pebble zones. It is a ferruginous marl of bright red color. The age of the vines is 60-100 years (4 ha of 100-year-old vines of Carignan). Exposure: 12 months in large oak barrels
The domain was founded in 2006 by Thomas Tybert and the Krist family. German Thomas Tibert is a talented winemaker and son-in-law of the famous Austrian cooper Stockinger. In parallel with his work at Stockinger, he advised several wineries in France and Italy. In 2005, Thomas met Gerard Gauby and the Calce Terroir, and from that moment he knew for sure that he wanted to make wine here.
