Subtle blend made with Grenache and Syrah grapes, and, espcially for this vintage, with Mourvèdre grapes which bring complexity.
All of the terroirs of Châteauneuf-du-Pape : sandy and limestone soils, red clay and pebbles.
The grapes are hand-picked and partly 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.
"Juicy, with a bright core of red currant and raspberry puree flavors that have yet to unwind fully, while light apple wood, floral and savory hints fill in throughout. Fresh and focused finish." Wine Spectator, March 2019
Service & food pairing suggestions:
