Winemaker Notes

This red represents the elegant and refined side of Châteauneuf, offering complex spice notes and a mineral accent on the finish.

Parcels of mixed varietals are vinified together in either ancient stone tanks, large wooden barrels or small barrels depending on the varietal content of each parcel.

The blend is famous for its use of the 13 permitted grape varieties in the area, with Grenache usually playing a dominant role.

The fruit comes up, gauzy but present, a delicate background for a hunger-inducing array of spices, herbs and umami flavors. It feels wonderfully organic, like forest floor and dried grasses, mushrooms and black cherries, ready now but also in no danger of fading over the next several years.
