Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah.
Vines grow on both sides of the Rhone river, on calcareous and clay soils. The climate is characterized by rather mild winters and hot & dry summers. The "Mistral" wind blows on the vines, especially during autumn and spring, protecting vineyards from diseases.
Grapes are vinified separately; direct press and cold settling (5-8°C). Alcoolic fermentation at low temperature (10-12°C) to obtain the "best of the fruit". No malolactic fermentation. Blend of the grape varieties in December. Early bottling to preserve freshness and fruit aromas.
A very delicate hue with a "rose petal" hints. Generous aromas of pink grapefruit and redcurrant jelly on the nose. Lively mouthfeel bringing finesse and freshness on the finish.
Service & food pairing suggestions:
Perfect from aperitif to dessert, with seafood products such as stuffed squid, Provençal mussels, bouillabaisse or even a seafood salad. Serve cool (12°C).
