Le Secret des Amants
In 2016, the dream and the vision of three wine lovers, Christophe, Patrick and Julien pushed them to create a wine to their image: an elegant and modern French wine crafted to be shared with friends. After sourcing the very best grapes, designing a powerful, recognisable and uncanny brand identity, the trio incorporated their company in 2017. Shortly after, the first two cuvées were created and launched on the market. Chapitre 1 – Les Amants Naissants (100% Syrah) et Chapitre 2 – La Rencontre (100% Viognier) were quickly acclaimed by the public and the professionals. Thanks to a very encouraging start, LSDA France kept on developing its brand and portfolio and came up in 2019 with a third wine to add to their portfolio: Chapitre 3 – L’Envie, a 100% Grenache Rosé. 2020 is the year of the Chapitre 4 – La Parade (100% Malbec). LSDA France works on two different vineyards whose 30-40 years-old vines produce low but very high-quality yields. The vines are located: In the Languedoc appellation area on very hot soils of rounded pebbles. Their grapes give depth and colour to the wine. On the cool and deep soils of La Malepère in the west of Aude. Grapes with aromas of small red berries bring their finesse and freshness.
Shiraz and Syrah are the same grape. The difference between the two stems from regional expressions and climate-driven styles. Winemakers who work in cooler-climate growing regions, both in the Old World and New World, tend to call their wines Syrah. The most famous examples come from the northern Rhône Valley of France. In the New World, in regions like Sonoma Coast, California; Yarra Valley, Australia; and parts of Chile, the wines are called Syrah because they emulate the leaner, acid-driven, savory styles of the Old World French classics.
Shiraz tends to come from warmer growing climates, namely the South Australian regions of Barossa, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills. Stylistically, these wines are lush, fruit-forward examples that embody the warmer, sunnier climate.
The wines are opaque, ruby-purple in hue, and offer concentrated jammy aromas and flavors of blueberry and blackberry, along with big, ripe tannins. Smokey notes along with black pepper spice, are also characteristic. Alcohol levels tend to be higher then “Syrah”, as are degrees of oak use and oak aging.
