AOP Côtes du Rhône
The tasting opens with a delicate fruity nose with aromas of blackberries and blueberries. The wine is fresh on entry and then broad and warm on the palate. The tannins remain soft and silky, giving way to a fruity finish.
The Côtes du Rhône terroir is made up of stony soils with a high clay and limestone content. The vines benefit from a regular supply of water and at night receive the heat that was stored in the soil during the day. The gently sloping south-facing hills allow the grapes to attain good maturity.
After complete destemming, the Syrah and Grenache varieties are vinified traditionally with a two-week maceration in a temperature-controlled environment. A small quantity of Syrah is vinified by carbonic maceration to boost the fruit potential.
