After a warm and hot summer, some rainy periods enabled the grapes to achieve the ideal maturity. During the harvest (which was early), the wind regulated the excessive temperatures, preserving the aromas of the grapes. This ideal weather and healthy conditions make the 2015 vintage one of the most qualitative in recent years.

Grape Varieties: 

Grenache and Syrah grapes.

Terroir: 

This Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes from clayey limestone soils from the north of Vaucluse and Gard. With a Southern French climate renowned for its contrasts, the vineyard endures the summer heat and Mistral wind.

Winemaking: 

Each grape variety is vinified individually to develop their own characteristics. The vatting is during 3 or 4 weeks according to grape variety. The wine is racked off and undergoes malolactic fermentation. Different grape varieties are blended. The ageing in vats lasts for 6 months before bottling.

Tasting notes: 

Crimson robe with purple nuances. The nose is seductive with hints of cherries and spices. The palate is delightful, expressive with a smooth finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

For ‘Sunday meals’ such as beef roast or roasted chiken followed by a nice cheese platter. Enjoy it now or cellar for up to 5 years.

It was at the beginning of the 1930sthat promotional material and advertising began to be developed. Exceptional artists emerged, making graphic art a creative expression and culturally significant. Our “1936” cuvée takes up these features, typical of the 1930s, taking us back 80 years to the time when French graphic art in advertising was at its peak.
