Tasting Notes

Intense morello cherry fruit and a touch of sweet spice on the nose, ripe berry, liquorice and a hint of cinnamon spice on the palate, this wine is full flavoured, rich and smooth with supple tannins.

In the vineyard

The Southern Rhône village of Cairanne lies in the heart of the Southern Rhône valley, north east of Orange. For this La Côte Sauvage fully ripe Grenache and Syrah grapes are hand picked from old bush vines on selected hillside slopes within Cairanne, northeast of Orange in the heart of the Rhône valley. The vineyards have the classic argilo-calcaire soil of limestone pebbles over clay.

In the winery

To make this Cairanne, winemaker, Eric Monnin, uses traditional vinification techniques - indigenous yeast and a long cuvaison period, followed by maturation for 22 months in mostly old French oak barrels to develop great concentration, complexity and finesse in the wine.

Food Recommendations

The perfect match for red meat dishes and rich stews.
