Cairanne is an appellation located in the heart of the Côtes du Rhône. It is in this idyllic setting, between sunny hillsides and a hot and dry climate that we produce wines with rich and harmonious aromas.

ADVICE

TASTING

This wine has a deep garnet color with purplish hues. The first nose is complex and after a slight aeration it releases aromas of stewed small black fruits and candied cherry. On the palate, we detect a nice acidity with well-present and structured tannins. This wine offers aromas of black fruits as well as toasted notes on the finish. Complex and well balanced, the finish is long.

 

Service

Serve at 16°C.
