RHONEA, DOMAINES ET CHATEAUX, DOMAINE CAROBELLE, AOC Vacqueyras, Rouge, 2018

Story

The wine
This estate is located in the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail in the heart of southern France, between 300 and 500 metres in altitude. Domaine de Carobelle has been producing pure, natural, elegant wines for several generations. Grown organically, with passion and rigour by Jean Paul Grangeon, the old Grenache and Syrah vines produce a balanced, rich, and complex wine with intense black fruit and spicy flavours.
Terroir
This red Vacqueyras comes from a garrigue with sandy soil, which accounts its richness and character.
Vinification
The vines are treated exclusively with natural plant protection products. This organic approach enables us to produce a healthy wine that reflects the terroir of Vacqueyras. The grapes are harvested by 20 pickers and meticulously sorted by hand. Our cellarmaster ferments the grapes traditionally to guarantee wine that is faithful to the terroir. It is then aged for 6-8 months to make the tannins round.
