Corbières `Les Mains sur les Hanches, Domaine Sainte-Marie des Crozes

Domaine Sainte Marie des Crozes
Product Code: MF10ZZRC

Tasting Notes

Beautiful ruby dress, intense and brilliant. The nose is powerful and atypical, first dominated by notes of cocoa, then evolving into scents of nutmeg and chestnut. The mouth, dense and fleshy, in attack is endowed with a beautiful sweetness, and dominated by very present tannins but of great finesse. A beautiful acidity completes the remarkable balance of this wine that is both long in the mouth and elegant.

            [Notes2] => Domaine Sainte Marie des Crozes is located under the Montagne d`Alaric terroir, the northernmost terroir of the Corbières around the village of Douzens. The soils are made up of limestone folds in a succession of rocky bands and stony terraces with a clay topsoil. At the crossroads of Mediterranean and oceanic influences, the climate is sunny, dry and hot. The 38 hectares of vineyard are planted on the mountainside, on clay-limestone slopes surrounded by  garrigue (scrubland). The farming is organic. Les Mains sur les Hanches comes from a blend of Grenache (85%) and Syrah (15%).

In the Alias ??family, being a winemaker is transmitted from generation to generation. This is how Jean, Hector and Hervé, son of the earth, devoted themselves to the vineyard by habit and inheritance as did all the Languedocites, while living from another activity.

In 1997, Bernard Alias, the current owner, inherited the property of Douzens. In an economic context of wine crisis, the challenge to be met was for him the detonator of his determination to rise to the rank of the best of his appellation and to be worthy of this earth inherited in terroir of Alaric.

The path was difficult. He surrounded himself with many tips before replanting and restructuring the vineyard. Many hectares have been replanted today offering a wide range of grape varieties.

In 2012, their youngest daughter Christelle, after a little tour of the winemaking world, made a place for herself among this tribe of winegrowers and proudly claims her position as the first woman vine grower of the family.

restructured by Christelle’s father, Bernard, and are now cultivated 
organically. Christelle joined her father in 2012 after a tour of the 
viticultural world and has clearly had fun creating her wines: there is a juicy vibrancy – she clearly aims for freshness and elegance over 
extraction and power.

In the Alias ??family, being a winemaker is transmitted from generation to generation. This is how Jean, Hector and Hervé, son of the earth, devoted themselves to the vineyard by habit and inheritance as did all the Languedocites, while living from another activity.

In 1997, Bernard Alias, the current owner, inherited the property of Douzens. In an economic context of wine crisis, the challenge to be met was for him the detonator of his determination to rise to the rank of the best of his appellation and to be worthy of this earth inherited in terroir of Alaric.

The path was difficult. He surrounded himself with many tips before replanting and restructuring the vineyard. Many hectares have been replanted today offering a wide range of grape varieties.

In 2012, their youngest daughter Christelle, after a little tour of the winemaking world, made a place for herself among this tribe of winegrowers and proudly claims her position as the first woman vine grower of the family.
