This organic Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes cultivated according to organic agriculture standards and certified by Ecocert, an international organic certification agency.
Clay and sedimentary soils in Northern and Southern Gard region (right bank of the Rhone River), and limestone soils from Vaucluse region (left bank of the Rhone River). This combination of terroirs delivers concentration and roundness, typical of the 2017 vintage.
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.
What is notable for the 2017 vintage: given the very high temperatures during the harvest period, the challenge was to preserve all the aromatic potential and freshness of the grapes. Therefore we harvested very early in the morning and were able to use cooling facilities in the cellar if the temperature of the grapes exceeded 20°C when arriving in the winery.
