Presentation

The wine
Manage by the Bayle familiy for three generations, the 18-hectare Canta Granouio vineyard is located on the Séguret Plain and the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail massif. Made from carefully selected plots, Canta Granouio’s character is multi-faceted thanks the the diversity of its soils.
Terroir
The gnarled Grenache vines on clay-limestone slopes benefit from the mistral. This dry wind helps to slowly ripen the grapes and keep them in tip-top condition. The Syrah vines grown on terraces are somewhat younger (about 30 years old). They give the wine structure and character.
Vinification
The wine making is traditional in tank in stainless steel. The fermentation lasts 25 days.
Varietals
Syrah
Grenache noir
Mourvèdre

Tasting advices

Tasting notes
Powerful and generous, this Estate is characterised by a deep garnet colour with a bluish sheen. The nose is dominated by aromas of red berry preserve, spices and liquorice and the palate has great length.
Food pairing
Idéal served with a baron of lamb with herbes de Provence, a flank steak with shallots or a fin Saint-Marcellin cheese.
