Domaine Cristia Cairanne 2007

Member Review by winescribbler:

Pleasant enough and again demonstrating the ranges' sweet-fruited drinkability but lacking a little 'zing' and complexity to make it stand out. Hints of ink, a smidge of ink and plenty of blackberry fruit give the palate weight and some interest. Perhaps a little yong still. http://www.spittoon.biz/domaine_cristia_from_naked_win.html

RED WINES The grapes are selected in the vineyard, then destemmed before being put into vats. Three weeks of fermentation and maceration in concrete vats follow, with the use of indigenous yeasts. Temperatures are kept low in order to produce aromatic wines. We do not insist on any massive extraction, but prefer the ‘matiere’ to express itself. (Due to the way we work in the vineyards, the grapes possess enough concentration). The pressed juice and free-run juice are blended together according to the vintage. Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines are aged in concrete vats and barrels for 18 months. Côtes-du-Rhône and Vin de Pays are aged only in concrete vats for 8 to 12 months. WHITE WINES The grapes are selected and pressed very quickly. They are fermented and aged for 8 months in a combination of barrels and stainless steel vats. Read less
