Grenache Noir, Pinot Noir
The grapes are harvested at night or in the small hours of the morning to ensure that they remain as cool as possible to retain all their precious aromas. After de-stemming they are gently pressed in a pneumatic press.
Each grape variety is handled separately. Alcoholic fermentation lasts a minimum of 2 weeks at around 16°, and the final blending takes place in December.
This Pinot Noir, a fairly rare grape in the Languedoc and even rarer as a rosé, is refined and vivacious with its notes of peony and black cherry, and gives a fine structure to the wine. The Grenache, more opulent, brings a softer note to the overall aromatic complexity with its nuances of small red fruits (redcurrant, raspberry).
Food and wine pairing: aperitif, with meat or fish starters, and with grilled meats.
