Blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes.
Stony soil of quartz mixed with sandy red clay.
The grapes are hand-picked and fully destemmed before fermentation. Each grape variety is fermented individually and fermentation/maceration lasts for approximately 4 weeks. After about 12 months of maturing, the different varieties, which were aged partly in oak and partly in vat, are combined to form the final blend before bottling.
Note de dégustation:
A rich, bright ruby colour with a subtle and complex nose of spices and garrigue. The palate is full and structured with spicy and dark-fruit flavours (prune and cherry) complemented by smooth, silky tannins on the finish.
Service & accords:
Enjoy this Châteauneuf du Pape at 16°C with grilled lamb chops or "Provençale" veal. It can be enjoyed already and up to 10 years of age.
