Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
“La Coume Lumet” is the Occitan language and means “Valley of Light,” a reference to the valley in which the vineyard is situated. 17 hectares of vines sit in the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains, between Carcassonne, a Cathar fortress town, and Limoux, the birthplace of sparkling wines. The valley forms a magical micro-climate, with warm, sunny days and cool evenings. The grapes thrive in clay and limestone soil lending natural acidity or “freshness” to the wine. In recognition of the special terroir, this appellation allows both Continental grape varieties like Merlot and Mediterranean grape varieties like Grenache Noir and Syrah.
Production Notes
Hand-harvesting in small crates allows the grapes to be sorted twice, once in the vineyard and once in the cellar. Half of the vinification takes place in tanks, half in oak barrels. Once bottled, the wine is aged for a minimum of 5 months to refine the aromas.
Winemaker Notes
The members of the family that own this domaine are skilled in a variety of backgrounds: computer science, mathematics, psychology and most importantly oenology. This reservoir of knowledge was invaluable during the years the family spent studying and researching the region, and choosing the perfect vineyard. They formed La Coume Lumet in 2012.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve this light-infused wine with chicken, cheeses and sushi.
