What wonderful cuvee, patchwork of cherry, violet and bottom of garrigue, a pure delight!
Red dress, with carmines reflections with blue notes. There are aromas of violets, cysts of the garrigues (flower), associated with notes of oregano and Juniper. This wine has a beautiful mouth with lots of smoothness and elegance, aromas of wild plums, liqueur of candied cherries, with notes of vanilla cream. Very good length.
Agreements: Side of calf of the Aubrac with some fried chanterelles. Net of duck with honey. Roast beef in crust with small vegetables.
This wine comes from the oldest vineyards located inside the Clos of the Pebble. The 1936 non-classement implies that all the vineyards inside the Clos are with the sides of the Rhône appellation. However the terroir is very close to that Cassanets, plots composing the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Quartz.
These plots are cultivated in a traditional way, with low yields (25 hl/ha) and practices respecting nature (plowing, organic amendments, phytosanitary treatments reduced to use sulphur and copper only) . The soil is mainly made up of pebbles. The vines includes 85%Grenache and 15%Syrah.
