With its lovely intense red colour, this wine offers fruits and acacia aromas enhanced by pepper, cinnamon and liquorice scents, and finishing on a very long and velvety palate. This wine is astonishingly long and fat. It already has good, well-balanced tannins. Lots of character.
Serve at 17 - 18°C with, it is excellent with grilled lamb, game and goat cheese.
Suggestion : The Mourvèdre? Perfect companion for a roasted meat with sauce !
This wine comes from the varietal Mourvèdre. The 15-year-old vines are pruned according to the «Cordon de Royat» method (trellised) on clay-limestone and schist soils near the Mediterranean coast in the Pays d’Oc region. The yields are low (50 hectolitres per hectare).
For about 2/3 of the final blend : very long maceration (over 3 weeks, to the end of the alcoholic fermentation). For the third remaining: carbonic maceration (fermentation of whole grapes).
A small proportion of the final blend is aged in contact with oak.
