description_recompenses

The 2017 vintage is one of the most promissing of the past few years with wines that are particularly elegant and harmonious, with superb, concentrated aromas and a solid ageing potential. The weather conditions during the growing season were difficult and extreme, resulting in a challenging task at harvest time. The high temperatures and almost total lack of rainfall since Springtime brought the harvest date forward by almost 10 days in many regions. Although these extreme conditions impacted heavily on the size of the harvest, with  one of the smallest in the last 60 years, the quality is exceptional.

Grape Varieties: 

This ECOCERT (Organic certification agency) certified Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Viognier and Clairette grapes, grown according to organic agriculture standards.

Terroir: 

The grapes have been planted on clay limestone soils in the Vaucluse, the Drôme and the Gard regions.

Winemaking: 

The harvest took place early in the morning to preserve the primary aromas of the grapes. Each grape variety is vinified individually to develop their own characteristics. Optimized settling of the lees to boost aromatic potential, fermentation at low temperature (12 - 14°C). Ageing in vats lasts around 6 months before bottling.

 

Specific to this 2017 vintage : the high temperatures during the harvest required special attention during the winemaking. Indeed, the challenge of our team was to maintain cool enough temperatures in order to preserve the aromatic potential  and the freshness of the wine.

Tasting notes: 

Attractive straw-green hue. Intense nose of white flowers and yellow fruit. The palate is round and generous with flavours of peach and mirabelle.  The finish is long, fresh and appetizing.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

Delicious as an aperitif, or paired with a vegetarian pie (asparagus, tomato, zucchini...), cod accras or langoustine with saffron. Enjoy it cool, between 10°C to 12°C, over the next 2 to 3 years.

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