AOC Côtes du Rhône Villages Visan
Dark and intense ruby colour, expressive nose with black fruit aromas (blackberry, blackcurrant), and rosemary.
Pleasant freshness with cherry flavours on the palate. Tannins are silky, which give a perfect balance between acidity, texture, and volume to this wine. Final aromas can be quite surprising as it finishes with soft clove sensation, still paired with a citrusy acidity. This is an elegant wine, with a beautiful complexity.
80% Shiraz, 20% Grenache
Can be tasted already, but you can also let it age 5 to 7 more years.
We combine traditional methods with modern technology, handcrafting qualitative wines which reflect our terroir. We believe in minimal intervention; we are here to create the best conditions to let the grapes express their true character and to keep these conditions from the harvest to the bottling. Here we do a long and soft extraction, during the winemaking process, which is about 3 to 4 weeks long. It enables us to obtain a delicate texture and fruity aromas, but also some licorice flavors. Shiraz grapes undergo a cold maceration before fermentation, in order to reveal the fruit and flower aromas of this variety. Fermentation temperature is meticulously controlled and stays around 26°C (79°F), and then only the free run wines (obtained without pressing) are used to create this cuvee. Maturing takes place in concrete tanks for the grenache and a fraction of the shiraz. The other part of the shiraz wine goes in 6hL oak barrels, for a minimum of 12 months. Finally, after a meticulous tasting, the blending is done, and the wine is ready for bottling.
This wine will match perfectly with strong-flavoured meat, such as lamb, or huntmeat.
