Cépages: 

Grenache and Syrah grapes.

Terroir: 

Primarily clayey limestone soils from the north of Vaucluse and Gard departments. With a Southern French climate renowned for its contrasts, the vineyards benefit from the summer heat for perfect maturing and the famous Mistral wind that keeps the grapes healthy.

Vinification: 

Each grape variety is vinified individually to develop its own characteristics. The vatting time lasts 3 to 4 weeks according to grape variety. The wines are then racked off and undergo malolactic fermentation. The different grape varieties are then blended and aged 6 months in vats before bottling.
Vegan Wine.

Note de dégustation: 

Awesome crimson shade. Intense aromas of black fruits and spices. Delightful notes of cherry. Long and juicy finish.

For everyday meals : roast chicken, charcuterie, pork shops or wild mushrooms pie.
Best served between 13°C - 15°C.

Born during the 3rd century in Spain, Saint Vincent is considered as the patron saint of winegrowers. One of the reason is the presence of the French word for wine (‘vin’) in his name. Vincent means also ‘triumphant’ in Latin.
