Domaine de Cristia Collection Cairanne 2007

Member Review by fibo86:

Cork closure, 15%abv Was a bit concerned on opening of the bottle as there seemed to be a sweaty smell coming from the bottle......Then I realized the dog was sitting next to me. Colour- Clear Medium red with a brick or tawny hue Nose- (with the dog outside) clean light/medium, developing Still quite fruit forward Mild beautiful candied violets with plum/raspberry and pencil shavings, some white pepper. Palate- dry medium + acidity medium tannin medium- body Good fruit follow through, some acid with a good length. Conclusion- very good quality especially for the price, drink now as it seems to be at a fantastic point in it's life or keep it but I don't think any more than 2 extra years ( given I am tasting this at the end of 2013). This is a cracker of a wine that I'd happily purchase again, given the chance. I think for me this is a wine to have with a cheese board, a goulash or any big hearty meaty dish.

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
