COUNTRY/REGION: France/Rhone Valley.
GRAPE VARIETIES: Grenache and Syrah.
VINEYARDS: Stretching out along the left bank of the Rhône river, around the limestone outcrop of the Mount Ventoux, the appellation covers an area of 6,400 hectares/ 15,808 acres. It shares the same pedological, climate and grape varieties as its neighbouring Côtes-du-Rhône vineyards.
WINEMAKING: The Grenache grapes are fermented in stainless steel vats. Daily pumping over allows gentle extraction of the phenolic components. The Syrah is sometimes left on the stems in order to fully express its characteristic fruit aromas.
The wine is blended before going into stainless steel vats in an air-conditioned winery. There they can spend between 6-8 months ageing before being bottled.
TASTING NOTES: Deep ruby red in colour with a berry fruit bouquet. The wine highlights the full aromatic power of these two noble grape varieties whilst retaining excellent freshness.
FOOD PAIRING: "Provencale" stews, cold cuts, mixed grills and poultry dishes.
DELIVERY: All our wines are stored in our importers bonded warehouse’s, which have the optimum environment for fine wine storage, by carefully regulating temperature, humidity and other microclimatic factors.
