Domaine de Cristia Côtes du Rhône 2006

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Still tightly wound with a core of damson plum red licorice crushed cherry and fruitcake notes held in check for now by racy graphite-edged tannins. The long sappy finish has a nice kirsch note. Grenache Syrah and Mourvhdre. Best from 2010 through 2024. 3 330 cases made. -JM Wine Spectator.

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
