Grenache is a grape variety wich gives the best of itself when it grows in arid regions. The red Grenache "Les Jamelles" is smooth and fruit-forward. It is an easy-drinking wine, perfect for unformal gathering and picnics.
The grapes are totally destemmed and undergo a long temperature-controlled maceration with regular pumping over. Malolactic fermentation is completed. 5 to 10% is aged in oak barrel for 7 to 9 months.
Deep purple in color with vivid highlights, it is a rich, rounded and fruit forward wine (raspberry) with spicy undertones (pepper, cinnamon, tapenade).
This Grenache was cultivated in the Pays d'Oc region in the South of France, between Béziers and Perpignan near the Mediterranean coast. The 10- to 20-year-old sloping vineyards are located on clay-silty soils coming from the old Aude river, and from the clay-limestone soils of the Minervois. Prunning method : "Cordon de Royat". Yield : 50 hectoliters per hectare.
It can be easily served with terrines or with Mediterranean cuisine, as well as grilled meats (lamb and meat stew) or sauced meats. Serve at 17-18°C.
