The Red Châteauneuf-du-Pape embelgiates the strawberry of the Woods: it is a solar wine, which is imposed by its solid stature and its generous fruit. Raced and full, it's a great success. This Châteauneuf-du-Pape "Clos" has a deep ruby colour, violet, with silky tannins and good acidity.
The grapes come from very varied places: Montalivet, La CRAU, Les Blachières, Coste froide, wood Seneseau, Palestor, wood Dauphin, pied de baud, the Bousquets, the Parrans, the Marines, the wood of the city, Cansaud, the Gallimardes and the greenhouses. They extend from North to South of the appellation.
The soils are mainly composed of quartzite colluvium, marine clays, sand and mollassic sandstone..
Assembly: 80%Grenache,%Syrah, 6%Mourvèdre, 4%Cinsault, Counoise,
Vaccarèse, Muscardin, black Terret, black Picpoul.
The tanks are filled by gravity with a partial scupping. The work of the wines is done without seeking a maximum extraction but favours more elegance and freshness.
The drip and press juices are raised separately, mainly in concrete vats where they perform their malolactia fermentation.
After Assembly the breeding continues in barrels.
