Cuvée “1737” (Côtes-du-Rhône)
Our red wine Côtes-du-Rhône : Cuvée “1737”
This wine is a blend of Grenache and Shiraz.
Clay and limestone subsoil, small pebbles and gravel on the surface. The maximum yield in Côtes du Rhône is 54hl/ha.
De-stemmed, crushed and fermented with regular pump overs (two daily over peak fermentation) to extract colour, flavour and tannins. After 3 weeks ‘on skins’ the fermenters are drained off and the skins pressed. The wine is then racked to 300L French oak barrels, where malolactic fermentation takes place.
- Color: dark red with purple hues
- Aroma: liquorice, vanilla, and red fruit
- Palate: the attack is full, the tannins are present, but they are velvety and silky. This wine is very well balanced; it can be described as fruity, dense and elegant.
Perfect match with a Roquefort risotto, a grilled steak served with sauce or with strong cheese.
14 – 16° C
Best drunk within 5 years.
