This Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault grapes from clay limestone soils from the 2 banks of the Rhone river. With a Mediterranean climate renowned for its contrasts, it endures the summer heat and Mistral wind.
Each grape variety is vinified individually. The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed with fermentation at low temperature. Racking off clear juices and blocking of the malolactic fermentation. Blending of the different grapes varieties takes place in December and bottled just after in order to capture all the freshness and fruit notes.
Rose-petal colour with light shades of purple. Floral scents with notes of raspberry and redcurrant. The palate is juicy and well balanced, the finish is fresh with fruity notes.
