Christophe Mestre
red wine


This red berry focused wine expresses that rich vintage with a touch of liquorish and spice notes.The oak aging conferes a mellow structur with rounded tannins and elegant finish.

Soil: chalky-clay, pebbles, sandy soil.

Grapes : 40 % grenache,40 % syrah, 15 % mourvèdre, 5 % cinsault

Yield : 33hl / ha

Wine making: Grapes are destemmed and Grenache and Cinsault are blended together while Syrah and Mourvèdre are vinified separately in thermo-regulated concrete tanks. The maceration lasts 30 days. After 3 months, half of the wine goes into oak barrels while the rest stays in concrete tanks. Approximately 18 months after harvesting, the wine is finally bottled. 

Aging : We usually consider that the wine reaches its best between its 4th and 5th year, but you can keep it longer in good storage conditions (cool and dry place, constant temperature)
