Vin Doux Naturel Grenat
This vintage gave us an elegant, fruity and perfectly balanced sweet red. Tannins are well integrated and the acidity will help this wine to age in time.
Blend of different little plots with clay-limestone soils, surrounding the winery in Rasteau. Vineyard called “Combe de l’Eoune”, elevated at 320m.
The grapes are hand-picked, before sunrise to make the most of cool night-time temperatures, then sorted at the winery. They are fully destemmed then ferment in stainless steel tanks. Daily grape-treading and pumping-over, until the expected sugar content is reached (density ~ 1040). Mutage with neutral wine alcohol, then ageing in oak barrels during six months.
Deep red wine colour. Intense nose, with juicy black cherries and cocoa notes. A true flavour explosion on the palate: it is smooth, rich and concentrated, with candied plums and white pepper aromas.
