Côtes du Rhône Villages Cairanne

Appellation d'origine protégée

Grenache, Syrah and Carignan grapes give a generous and fruity wine with an elegant aromatic intensity.

Freshness, minerality and elegant texture are the character and the typicity of this vintage. Harmonious and particularly qualitative thanks to good weather conditions: a humid winter and dry spring combined with a warm to hot end of summer resulted in very healthy sanitary conditions in the vineyard. The maturation was slow but constant up to harvest time.
