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: 

This Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault grapes from clay limestone soils from the North of the Vaucluse and Gard. With a Mediterranean climate renowned for its contrasts, it endures the summer heat and Mistral wind.

Winemaking: 

Each grape variety is vinified individually. The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed with fermentation at low temperature. Racking off clear juices and blocking of the malolactic fermentation. Blending of the different grapes varieties takes place in December and bottled just after in order to capture all the freshness and fruit notes.

Tasting notes: 

Striking pink robe with light shades of salmon. Floral scents with notes of bright red fruits. The palate is juicy and well balanced, the finish is fresh with notes of raspberries.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

It will pair nicely with sushi and picke quenelles in a crayfish sauce. Serve
cool, between 10 to 12°C, now or within 2 years of age.

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 !
