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.

Scents of granite and tobacco are layered with con... Chuck Hayward. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Domaine de Cristia Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Renaissance 750ml
