Vin de France Rouge
A blend of Grenache (70%) with Carignan (25%) and a hint of Merlot. The Grenache and Merlot are located on sandy soils in Roaix, the Carignan also in Roaix but on the banks of a river on stony loam soil. The first plots are harvested with a slight over-ripeness, which gives some bitterness, with the Carignan refreshing the Grenache and giving an easy wine for Gargantuas. Ageing in cement and fibreglass and bottling in the spring following the harvest.
