Absolu, a wine representing the best of Chateau d’Astros from the selection of thevines capturing the most light and typicity of a provencal terroir, limestone and dry soils, and all the poetry and magic of the estate.
The cuvée Absolu reveals and enhances the beauty of the preserved nature to offer a pure experience of well being and harmony.
A cuvée made from the finest parcels of Chateau Astros. Made from old vines that catch the best light and flourish on a dry, calcareous terroir, typically Provençal.
The harvest takes place at night to limit oxidation and optimise the freshness of the aromas and the fruit. Organic farming.
Eight centuries of vine culture do not lie. On the Astros’ lands, Nature’s blessings are concentrated to create exceptional wines.
From the generous sun through to the cleansing power of the wind, all the combined elements enable the terroir to express itself as genuinely as possible to guarantee the greatest fruit’s finesse. The diversity of its soils contributes as well : on the one hand, a rich alluvial soil producing light, fruity and fresh wines, and on the other hand, a limestone rocky medium, in which the vines bury their roots, bringing aromatic concentration and complexity to the wines.
This richness and diversity give Astros wines their aromas and intensity.
Many grape varieties spread over the 198 acres of vines on the estate such as Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Rolle, Caladoc, Carignan…
The grape has always been the focus of attention: every practice is precise and measured, from pruning to harvesting, and aims to follow the natural cycle. The rhythm of the fruit prevails in order to obtain its most beautiful expression in the wines.
