2P Production, Mix Rouge
A mix of red and white grapes. Fermented on the skins in fibreglass. The skins are removed after a short amount of time to limit the amount of extraction in the wine and keep the freshness. The wine is racked once after alcoholic and malolactic fermentation complete, and goes back into tank for 6-8 months of elevage. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Grapes: Merlot 70%, Loin de l’œil 30%
Place: Cahuzac-sur-Vere, South West, France
2P Production is the side project of Romain, the youngest brother of the prestigious Plageoles family winery in Gaillac, and his wife Fanny Papelard, thus 2P.
Romain primarily takes care of the vines, and Fanny works in the cave during harvest. They make all the winemaking decisions together as a team. All the wines are vinified at the Plageoles winery.
The Plageoles family has been so influential in winemaking in the Gaillac region, dating all the way back to Romain's grandfather Robert, and Romain and Fanny are doing their best to continue that tradition in their own style.
