Tasting Notes

Colour

A wonderful garnet-red to a brilliant crimson robe.

Nose

The wine has a very fruity bouquet (red fruits, blackcurrant...) with aromas of red fruit jam.

Palate

A balanced wine with silky tannins and a superb lengthy finish. 

 

Origin

The Vin de Pays d'Oc wine-growing region is omnipresent in Languedoc. It covers the area from the South of the Côtes du Rhône all the way to Carcassone.

Vinification

The grapes are harvested at perfect maturity, destemmed, crushed and fermented for 6 to 12 days. The fermentation temperature is regulated so as not to go above 32°C. The wine is then quickly racked, filtered and bottled.

Soil

The largest wine-growing region in the world is established on a host of terroirs: clay-limestone, gravel, and schist soils.
