Vinification and ageing :
Each plot is vinified and aged separately in order to preserve its individual character. True to our policy, we employ no chemical additives; only sulphur is used, and in moderation.Locally-present yeasts contribute all the aromas of the terroir during alcoholic fermentation, and remontage, pigeage or delestage. Daily tasting takes place throughout the process to ensure production of wines that are both balanced and complex.
After 6 months ageing in concrete vats, our red Côtes du Rhône Villages Visan is bottled very young, in Spring, to preserve its freshness and the full flavour of its fruit.
Tasting notes 2015 vintage :
Vibrant black cherry colour.Nose of red and black berries (blackcurrant and blackcurrant buds) , with hints of violet.Full, silky and fresh on the pallet: a definite aroma of blackcurrant with a note of white pepper.A long and refreshing finish of delicious black fruits.
