Food Pairings for Armand Cdr Villages Cairanne Soleiador
Cairanne is one of the leading villages in the Cotes du Rhone and will soon surely achieve independent status. In this domaine the diversity of the terroir allows an expression of typicity in the wines as well as providing the complementary components. The vines are worked in the traditional way with leaf thinning and lutte raisonée as part of the respect for the environment. Practice in the winery is very much up-to-date with destemming, temperature control and pneumatic pressure amongst the procedures designed to accentuate the fruit. The vines are grown on clay-limestone mix with Cailloutes and the cépage is 70% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah. Harvest is by hand and yields are relatively low at 38hl/ha. The colour is most attractive and lovely aromas of ripe fruits assail one (prune and apricot) and subtle sunshine notes of cooked spices and liquorice.
