Côtes du Rhône, M. Chapoutier

Mainly Grenache and Syrah; grapes are selected from a variety of vineyards with differing soil types, including clay and calcareous, giving richness and complexity to the wine. After destemming, vatting lasts around 15 days, providing a good tannic structure. Regular pumping over is carried out during ageing in large tanks, which aids clarification. Garnet-red; the nose shows aromas of red fruits, mainly morello cherry, and spice such as liquorice and white pepper; the palate is well structured with silky tannins.
