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 Rhône River), and limestone soils from Vaucluse region (left bank of the Rhône River).
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.
"Dark fruit aromas with a full body, lifted, fine tannins, gentle spice and creamy oak nuances. The wine is powerful in an easy-drinking style." Mick O'Connell MW, Sumita Sarma, Victoria Sharples, Joseph Arthur, August 2020 (IWSC)
