MILLESIME 2016: – GOLD Medal: Concours Général Agricole de Paris
– 89-91 / 100: Taster JEB DUNNUCK
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.
Cairanne is a fleshy wine and develops magnificent aromas of candied red fruit on round and smooth tannins.
This wine comes from old vines on our 2 hectare vineyard in Cairanne. Wine produced on clay-limestone hillsides with South-East exposure. This particular terroir is beneficial in all respects for the cultivation of the vine, and for the production of wine for aging.
- 60 % Grenache
- 20 % Carignan
- 20 % Mourvèdre
Located in the heart of the southern slopes, between Cairanne
and Rasteau. Clayey-sandy soils.
Manual harvest, Long vinification of more than 1 month. Aging in stainless steel vats to respect the raw fruit as much as possible.
8 to 10 years
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.
Serve at 16°C.
