TENTATION DE LA MARQUISE 2016
Cultivation method : Organic farming “Agriculture Biologique”
Wine made from organic grapes. Certified by FR BIO 10.
Ancient terraces of the Rhone, clay-limestone soil, mostly located on the plateau of Clairet where the Marquise de Sévigné liked to visit and taste the grapes in the 17th century…
These plots are cultivated organically, which is not only environmentally friendly but also interesting on the palate with an intensity and special aromatic quality - a real expression of terroir.
Syrah (50%) and Grenache (50%)
In steel tanks, vinification traditional with 2 weeks of fermentation around 25° C.
Beautiful red color with hints of purple.
Intense nose with aromas of very ripe, and almost jam-like red and black fruit . Full and large on the palate, round, riche, opulent, with a nice persistence and fine tannins.
Intense aromatic expression with notes of licorice, cassis, and black cherry.
To drink in the next 3 years with grilled or roasted red meats.
