Chante-Coucou is the emblematic cuvée of the domain, and the one I would open to any Bordeaux lover in order to convince them of Elian's talent. More opulent and juicy due to its dominant Merlot, it still retains the unique personality of its terroir and its vigneron. Supplemented with Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Syrah from clay-gravelly soils on gray and blue marly sedimentary conglomerates (called “molasse” in French) the different terroirs allow Elian to play with the different tannic expressions of these four grape varieties. He vinifies them separately: Syrah and Malbec are macerated whole-clustered in open foudres, the Merlot and the Cabernet Sauvignon are de-stemmed. Macerations last two to three weeks. Aged 20 months in used barrels, the wines are blended together en masse 6 months before bottling. Enjoy the wine decanted for an hour or so with Provencal herb rubbed lamb shoulder with vine shoots or a pan-fried foie gras with cranberry and spring carrot. 50% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec, 10% Syrah.
