    Vineyards are cultivated on blue marl and clayey soils, mainly based in the southern part of the Rhône valley. Stretching along both banks of the Rhône river from Vienne to Avignon, the
    Appellation is situated across 163 villages and 6 “départements”, with the majority
    of it concentrated in the south. 15 to 20 hectares is the average size of a
    property classified as Appellation Contrôlée, with 96 % of production being
    red wine. The A.O.C. Côtes-du-Rhône is France’s second largest over all
    producer of Appellation Contrôlée wine.
  • Vinification and maturation
    Mechanical harvest followed by a classical winemaking with 3 weeks maceration
    and ageing in vats.
  • Features

    blackcurrant.
  • Food Pairings
    It is the perfect companion to red meals and games.
  • Other information
