Appearance : deep garnet with some violet tints
Château Saint Roch
Lirac - Red
Nose : Extremely aromatic with some blackcurrant, blackberry and raspberry notes.
Palate : Velvety and dense. Good but non aggressive tannins.
Advice from the sommelier : Best served at 18°C. To be paired with Rosemary steak "à la plancha" or Roasted quails with cherries and balsamic reduction !
Grape varieties : 100 % Grenache
Harvest : 100% hand harvest with thorough sorting upon arrival at the winery.
Terroir : Coteaux silico-calcaires des monts de Saint-Geniès (300m d'altitude), ces coteaux sont protégés du mistral empruntant la Vallée du Rhône contigüe. Ce pur Grenache est issu d'un vignoble planté il y a plus d'une soixantaine d'années
Winemaking : The harvest is blended before fermentation, process used by only very few estates nowadays, allowing each grape variety to express its potential better than if fermented alone. Maceration and alcoholic fermentation take place at controlled temperatures. The cap is punched down regularly. Maceration lasts 12 to 18 days. The wine is made with no adjunction of sulphites.
Potential og ageing : Ready to drink but can keep 4 to 5 years.
