Cuvée " CESAR" - Red Wine

© Domaine Roche-Audran

Vinification and ageing :
Harvesting, racking and bottling all follow cosmic rhythms in order to obtain wines that are as natural as possible. No chemical additives are applied. Only sulphur is used, with moderation. Locally-present yeasts contribute all the aromas of the terroir during alcoholic fermentation. Daily tasting takes place throughout the process to ensure production of wines that are both balanced and complex.
Fermentation and ageing take place in 50 hectolitre tronconic French oak vats for 12 months.

Tasting notes 2014 vintage :
Black cherry colour with intense ruby tints.A nose of crystallised cherries and raspberry, with notes of  garrigues, of thyme and rosemary.Full-bodied and powerful, with excellent ripeness of fruit.The structure is both powerful and elegant, and the freshness gives this wine great length on notes of raspberry coulis.
Keep for about a year and then enjoy for a decade.Serve at 18°C.
