Tasting notes

Expressive fruit aromas with spicy sweetness and roundness combined with a surprisingly fine, fresh, spicy mouth which makes its profile unique.

Pairing

Ex Arena can be paired with a wide range of Mediterranean dishes, lamb stew, chicken tajine, even strawberries or chocolate cake - or enjoyed on its own. Ex Arena develops remarkably after 24 hours. It can be drunk now or aged for up to 8 years.

Production

Terroir

Villafranchian (Grenache) and a 40-metre-deep bed of sea sediment and alluvial deposits of stone, pebbles, red sand and gravel from the Cévennes (Mourvèdre). In Corneilhan, 20 km from the Mediterranean. North of Béziers. Close to the Parc Régional Naturel du HautLanguedoc, at an altitude of 40 metres.

Viticulture

Manual harvest in small cagettes. Selective picking: each parcel (or each section within a parcel) and each variety is harvested at different times and vinified separately.

Vinification

The grapes gently fall into the small cement vats of our authentic winery. Ageing in stainless steels vats. We use the grape press of the old cellar, built in the early 1900’s.

Winery Description

Brigitte Chevalier came to Faugères to make wine in her own, highly individual way. In a short space of time, her organically farmed estate of 11 hectares has established itself as a leader within its chosen appellation and a highly rated name within South of France winemaking circles.

She hunted down and bought the parcels that met her objectives, choosing them on the basis of the quality of their terroir and their grape varieties, their exposure (north-facing, for balanced wines) and altitude (300 metres, in the foothills of the Massif Central), in Faugères, in the heart of the Haut-Languedoc Parc Naturel.

She wants to capture the style and delicate flavor of cooler-appellation wines in the Languedoc. Domaine de Cénène terroirs, combined with deep-rooted vines, very low yields, grapes hand-picked at optimum ripeness and careful vinification give Brigitte’s organic wines a unique profile.

Domaine Cébène‘s name refers to the Languedoc goddess who inspired the area’s name Cévènnes.
