Roques N Toque - Grenache-Syrah

Vin de France

A wine for immediat pleasure, with no added sulfites, ideal for sharing among friends at any time. An opportunity to discover the delicious, fruit-forward and very popular grape varieties of the Rhone Valley.

No added sulphite

This year, the harvest was later. As everywhere else, the June heat wave and the summer drought are related to the lower yields. Fortunately, quality was not affected. Finally, the storms in July and August let the grapes reach their optimum ripeness. This rainfall did not make up for the drought, which resulted in smaller berries with intense aromas.

Roques N Toque - Grenache-Syrah

Grape Varieties: 

50% Grenache
50% Syrah


 Grenache et Syrah vineyards grow on two parcels ("Les Roques" and "Fontbonne") on clay-limestone soils, located in Sarrians and Vacqueyras.


Vinification and maturation with no suphiltes added, in a "primeur" style : not much assembly, short fermentation and fast devatting to keep a pure fruit.

Tasting notes: 

- Shiny purple robe
- Bright nose with black fruits (blackcurrant, cherry, blackberry...) and violet.
- Aromatic, generous and greedy palate.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

Enjoy now and preferable within the year following the vintage.
Serve at 15°-18°C.
At any time ... during an unannounced "afterwork",  remake the world with friends, in the kitchen on the corner countertop.

Age of vines & yield: 

8 years

From the vineynard to the cellar, human intervention has been reduced to the essential.
