The 2014 harvest marked a season of even development across all grape varieties, higher yields, and a return to normal volumes, with production levels on par with better years. Grenache has delivered wines that are warm and rounded on the palate, expressing the typical spiced blackcurrant and black berry flavors of the southern appellations. A cool summer will result in wines that are less tannic and full-bodied than usual, but nonetheless, expressive of the terroir.

Grape Varieties: 

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 elegant, round with a spicy finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

For everyday meals with cooked meats, grilled meat and strong cheese.Enjoy it now or cellar for up to 5 years.

Born during the 3rd century in Spain, Saint Vincent has been considered as the patron saint of winegrowers. Given that “Vincent” means “triumphant” in Latin, the choice of this name for our cuvée needs no further explanation !
