* FOOD AND WINE PAIRING *
This Languedoc is ideal at 16°C with tapas, meat and roasted vegetables.
The colour is a brilliant ruby red and the bouquet reveals lovely intense red-fruit scents, in particular strawberries, set off nicely by spicy hints.
The tannins are fine and silky on the palate and the wine is generous and fleshy, very fruity and with a strong mineral accent.
The various grape varieties are harvested separately when each of them is just at the right ripeness level, with Syrah generally the first to be ready. The winemaking process is managed to respect the specific characteristics of the grape varieties and the qualities of the soil. The grapes are harvested by machine with a built-in sorting system.
The grapes are thoroughly de-stemmed and then macerated for about 3 weeks. The extraction work (pumping over, running off, cap punching) is carefully adapted to each vat to achieve effective extraction of the varietal flavours and a dense, silky structure.
After light fining and bottling, the wine is stored for several months before going on sale.
