Rouge Plénitude 2019 A.O.C VENTOUX
This wine is created only in exceptional years. To obtain maximum body, there is much work on the vine to limit its yield (28 hectolitres per hectare) and to remove the leaves in order to harvest very ripe grapes. This wine is not fermented with yeast and is matured in a ‘foudre’ (very large older oak barrel) for 9 months.
Grape Varieties: Syrah 90%, Grenache 10%
Wine making method: Very ripe grapes are handpicked to give more flexible tannins. This is followed by a cold maceration for 4 days and a long fermentation (1 month).
Tasting Features: purple Robe, black fruits aroma with notes of liquorice. Full bodied wine with fine tannins and lasting aromatic taste.
