VINEYARD: This appellation spreads over 11 communes within a triangle formed between the hills of Tain l’Hermitage, the Rhône river and the Isère river. It is, in volume, the most important cru of the Northern Rhône. The vineyards are situated on the plain below the surrounding hills where the soils are made up of granite and quarternary alluvial deposits left by the Isère river (clay and gravel). We select our wine yearly from amongst a small group of trusted wineries of the appellation with whom we have been working for many years.

VINIFICATION: Ploughing of the soils, de-leafing and  green harvest during the year. The grapes are hand harvested at full maturity. Grapes are then de-stemmed and crushed. The maceration last 15 days in stainless steel vats at a medium temperature (26°C – 28°C) in order to preserve primary fruit aromas. The wine is then aged in oak cask and concrete tanks for 12 months before bottling. 

TASTING NOTES:
Colour – Dark with hints of deep purple.
Nose – Intense blackcurrant and violet aromas with spicy notes of white pepper, liquorice, vanilla, black olives and a hint of laurel leaves.
Palate – Harmonious and firm, suggestive of cherries and blackcurrant with long and well defined tannins on the finish.


FOOD AND WINE MATCHING: Serve at 16 °C. Open 2 hours in advance.
Enjoy with duck breast in green pepper sauce, potato dauphinois, veal prune and almond tagine, soft cheeses or even ice cream with chocolate & star anise sauce.
