Since Antiquity, the Celts and then the Romans had already made Vaison-La-Romaine the capital of the country of Voconces. Nestled in the meanders of the Ouvèze river, the culture of the vine shapes the landscape of the city and marks the spirits with its balanced and generous wines.
Harvests are mainly manual. Average yield 38 hl / ha. The average age of the vines: 42 years.
Traditional vinification in concrete and stainless steel vats. Control of temperatures. Long fermentation, around 20 days.
Clay-limestone hillsides and sandy-clay soils, exposed south-southwest.
Tasting Notes: Beautiful color, intense and brilliant, carmine hue. The nose evokes wild fruits. Some mentholated, even resinous notes: all this brings freshness to otherwise warm wine. Because the mouth is powerful, it needs to be tamed. A decanter will allow it to breathe to better take advantage of the aromas of juniper berries, Greek-style olives, laurel, wild black fruits... A service around 16°C will give you total pleasure!
Pairing: It will go wonderfully well with veal paupiettes with mushrooms, a Madeira (or Port) sauce, cream, and olives of course! But a matured meat would be an interesting choice too, bringing depth to the wine that will support the aromatic width of the matured beef. For vegans: seitan ribs accompanied by fried cauliflower wings. Original and delectable.
