La Femme Rouge
AOC Ventoux Rouge
Grenache 50%, Syrah 50%
Malolactic fermentation in small handmade clay jars of 150L. Minimum human intervention as possible for 12 months.
From a clay terroir to a handmade clay jar, a very special cuvée vinified showing the pure rendering of our noble terroir. In the mouth we find the purity of the fruit and the natual expression of our clay-limestone soil. Sweet notes of small red fruits, soft and subtle tannins, for an exquisite finish.
Poultry, Iberian feather, veal chop or beef, venison and mature cheeses.
