FULL BODIED RED WINES




Vieilles Vignes

2015

TERROIR
Clay-limestone terraces (geologically named "Glacis de Grangeneuve") made up of brown clay on the surface and rolled alluvial pebbles formed as a result of the erosion of the Moulon massif (rocky massif located on the northern side of the estate).
HARVEST
End of September at full maturity of our oldest vines of Syrah and Grenache, 50 years or older.
GRAPE VARIETY
50% Grenache Noir, 50% Syrah
VINIFICATION
Traditional vinification of each varietal, destemmed after harvest. Vinification in stainless steel tanks with mechanical pneumatic punching down. Between 20 and 30 days of long maceration with frequent pumping over or rack and return to achieve a good extraction. Wine is aged in concrete tanks for 18 months before bottling.
TASTING
Nice purple colour. Intense nose characterized by small red and black fruits (like cassis), licorice, and garrigue. A beautiful palate, rich, full, and soft with good balance. The intense fruity given by this vintage combined with already silky tannins let us appreciate this wine since its bottling.                                                  WINE AND FOOD PAIRING
Red meats either grilled, roasted or in gravies (truffles), feathered game, cheeses.
