IGP Pays d’Oc
Lovely ruby red hue with bright highlights.
The nose is powerful with notes of spice and red fruit. The palate is fresh and supple with perfectly soft tannins.
The grapes for this wine come from the clay-limestone hillsides overlooking the medieval citadel of Carcassonne. The north/north-western exposure enables a gradual and complete ripening of the grapes, with a significant variation in temperatures between day and night. This gives the wine great freshness and delicate aromas.
The vinification takes place in concrete vats with a 24-hour cold pre-fermentation maceration. The fermentation is traditional with daily pumping over and some rack and return operations. Partial ageing in oak for a few months.
