From the Tank: Vin Rouge was born out of the old school idea of going to the local winery with a big empty jug to fill up with easy-drinking juice. Made with hand-harvested, organically or sustainably grown grapes, indigenous yeasts, and low sulfur, this 3-Liter bag-in-box is carbon efficient wine packaging and produces little waste – with a 55% lower carbon footprint than traditional glass bottles in terms of energy needed for glass production and transportation, and 85% less landfill waste. The paperboard is recyclable, and the lower weight means reduced fossil fuel emissions. A Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan blend, with elegant notes of smoky red fruit, violet, sweet herbs, and baking chocolate. The palate is rich with ripe cherry and berry flavors, and a mineral note that is followed by supple acidity and velvety tannins. Works well with grilled chicken, pork, charcuterie, or simply on its own.
Age of Vines: 20 to 80 years
Soil: Red clay based & stone strewn
Varieties: 40% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 15% Carignan
Vinification Method: Hand harvested. No external yeast & no enzymes are employed during the winemaking process. The bunches are destemmed and the fruit undergoes fifteen days of maceration. The wine is stored in enamel-lined tanks, and are bagged and boxed on demand.
Tasting Note: Garnet in the glass with shimmering highlights. Elegant notes of smoky red fruit, violet, sweet herb and a note of baking chocolate. The palate is rich with ripe cherry and berry flavors, and a mineral note that is followed by supple acidity and velvety tannins. This is a very expressive red with a great concentration of fruit that is yet never overly extracted. The wine finishes with floral notes & a dash of black pepper.
Pairing: Works wonders with grilled chicken & pork, cold cuts, or simply by itself.
From the Tank® was born out of the collaboration between François Ecot of Jenny & François Selections and Denis Deschamps of Les Vignerons D’ Estézargues fame. They decided on a blend for the three-liter bag-in-box that would be the exact same quality as what Jenny & François bring to the US in bottles. Each year, the From the Tank® wine fountain is a special blend made just for Jenny & François Selections.
Great for serving by the glass, for parties, picnics, or for people who only want a glass of wine a day. The conservations will last much longer than bottles once they are opened and it is light to carry. The box also has a much smaller carbon footprint than regular wine bottles because of its weight, making it lighter to ship.
Les Vignerons D’ Estézargues is a co-operative cellar in the small town of Estézargues that is located near Avignon. Les Vignerons D’Estézargues is truly unique in the wine world. All over France, the co-op still plays a very important role in the production and sale of wine. Co-ops receive grapes from members and then make wines from them, these wines are made in large batches and grapes from many different vineyards are vinified together; the focus is on producing wine in quantity. Les Vignerons D’ Estézargues takes a fundamentally different approach; starting in 1995 the ten different growers in this co-op began to vinify their wine separately and make single cuvées from their best plots. On the heels of the single cuvée evolution Les Vignerons D’ Estézargues began to practice natural winemaking. Possibly one of the only co-ops in the world to do so, Les Vignerons D’ Estézargues uses no external yeasts, no filtering, no fining and no enzymes are employed on the grapes during the winemaking process. Michael Trebillon is one of the winemakers behind Les Vignerons D’ Estézargues, he grows the fruit for Domaine les Genestas, and Denis Deschamps makes the wine, where their collective efforts have been hailed by wine lovers and critics around the world.
