IN CONCRETE VATS BEFORE BEING BOTTLED
An impressive nose, starting with a zest of pomelo and blood orange, moving onto notes of black berry and black currant. The same impressions and the same depth reappear with an attack offering remarkable freshness, and the same type of notes – rich fruity flavors cover the palate. This wine offers plenty of opulence and aromatic freshness, the sign of a great Grenache wine derived from calcium-rich schist and red clay.
PERFECT FOOD PAIRING :
Roast or preserved duck, roast beef or t-bone steak.
The complex combination of soils offers depth and plenty of character to Vers le Nord. Old vines of Grenache Noir, planted with Syrah (about 8% of the rootstock within the parcel) highlight fresh characteristics. Citrus (lemon and blood orange) and black berry notes come to the fore, as well as northern floral aromas.
In a 50-hl stainless steel vat. The grapes of the entire parcel are transformed into wine in the same vat.
