After a mild and dry winter, a spring without frost and a particularly hot summer, harvesting began several days later than 2015, with picking taking place between early to late September. During the harvest, weather conditions were truly exceptional, with warm clear days, fresh nights and some occasional light rainfall, stretching from early September all the way until the end of October. The sanitary state of the grapes throughout the region was excellent. So, this year again, the 2016 vintage is very qualitative particularly for southern appellations.

Grape Varieties: 

This organic Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes from clayey limestone soils in the Vaucluse. The grapes have been planted and cultivated according to organic agriculture standards and have been certified by Ecocert, an international organic certification agency.

Winemaking: 

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 undergoe malolactic fermentation. The different grape varieties are then blended and aged 6 months in vats before bottling.

Tasting notes: 

Crimson robe with purple nuances. The nose is seductive with hints of cherries and spices. The palate is elegant and round with a spicy finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

It pairs nicely with game, grilled or barbequed meat and full-flavoured cheese. Enjoy it now or up to 5 years of age.

The name of this organic cuvée refets to Saint François d’Assise, saint patron of ecologists and nature’s friends.
