CHATEAU VANNIERES HERITAGE RED 2016 750ML

Located between the village of La Cadiere d'Azur and Saint-Cyrsur-Mer, the Vannieres castle is exposed south-west and preserved to the north by the Sainte Baume massif. In 1957, Lucien Boudot, winemaker in Beaujolais and Rhone Valley, acquired this Domaine which has 33 hectares in production. Eric Boisseaux (his grandson), is working to evolve the style of Chateau Vannieres, combining it with the expertise of modern oenology, while respecting the originality of the terroir and the grape varieties . The soil, composed of marls and limestones, gives fine tannins, powerful and complex bouquets.

Grapes:
65% Mourvedre,35% Grenache

Hand harvested, only in small cases to prevent oxidation. A 15 days shorter fermentation and moderate pump-ups will allow to obtain structure and flexibility. The wines are then bottled very quickly in February of the following year in order to keep all their fruit aromas. The blending of the grape varieties will allow to obtain the harmony characteristic of this wine. The vines are processed as naturally as possible without the use of chemicals or synthetics. A pure soil allows to obtain a grape that has taste!

Tasting Notes:
It is a wine with deep garnet color, nose with wild and spicy aromas, fine and intense, complemented by flavors of red berries.This red wine pair perfectly with grilled meats, it is a wine of pleasure to drink slightly refreshed in summer. An ideal companion for pork and barbeque.
