Description

Vinsobres has delicate notes of fresh black fruit and sweet spices. The generous mouth, offers an elegant tannic texture full of finesse, and ends with a lot of character, firm and mineral. 

The terroir of Vinsobres, a beautiful village located near Vaison la Romaine, really makes this wine special. The vineyard is at an altitude of 300m and is situated, for the most, part on terraces. Vinsobres is particularly suitable for Syrah because it preserves the finesse which is often lost in more southern climates. It develops notes of violet, smoked meat and blackberries. Grenache is also suited to this terroir, full bodied and not heavy, with notes of black chocolate, cherry and typical Garrigue aromas.

The entire harvest is destemmed. Syrah is vinified in wooden truncated tanks that are punched down and pumped over. The Grenache is vinified in stainless steel tanks. The Syrah is partly aged in one year old oak barrels. Blending takes place after malolactic fermentation and the wines age for a least 6 months before being released.
