High in the hills of the Corbières, in a stunning corner of south west France, Château Trillol has been the Sichel family property since 1990. Since then, Benjamin Sichel, Technical Director and Henri Guiot, Estate Manager, have worked tirelessly to fulfill its potential. Following the latest acquisition of plots of vines adjoining the estate, the entire harvest will, in future, consist exclusively of grapes from the historic vineyard of Trillol. Benjamin Sichel, and Henri Guiot will now have greater control over vintage quality and will be able to produce wines which correspond exactly to their vision.
The wines of Trillol have gained in depth and intensity and are displaying greater freshness than ever before - an essential feature of this high-lying vineyard. To mark this major turning point in the control that the estate has over quality, and at the same time the reconstitution of this historic vineyard, Domaine du Trillol is changing its name to Château Trillol. At 400m above sea level, the vineyard is located in two of the Corbières terroirs: Termenès and Quéribus. The first, the silica-rich, Terroir de Termenès is located high up in the hills. The second, Terroir de Qéribus, is in the middle of the valley that surrounds the village of Cucugnan. Here the local grape varieties, Grenache, Syrah and Carignan (harvested by hand), result in an authentic wine that is packed with character and a strong sense of place.

WINEMAKING/MATURING
The grapes are totally de-stemmed and then fermented for 6 to 8 days at 30 to 32°C. Maceration lasts for 30 to 40 days with daily pumping over. The vats are run off and the press wines separated from the free run juice. This is followed by the malolactic fermentation. Some of the grapes are vinified by carbonic maceration. Depending on the vintage, the wine is then aged for 6-12 months in oak barrels and racking takes place every 3 to 4 months. Trillol is lightly fined but not filtered before bottling.
