Création Grand Vin - Éternité, AOC Vacqueyras, Rouge, 2017

Presentation

The wine
ÉTERNITÉ is a divine wine in the truest sense of the word. This «divine» wine is somehow out of time and adheres to no strict rules. Éternité reflects the rigorous work of men who make the most of our terroir to produce the best possible wine. It is one of the jewels of Cru Vacqueyras, and epitomises the quality produced by our artisan winegrowers.
In the vineyard
We spent a long time discovering the best vineyard plots for each grape variety in order to make Eternité. Picking starts only when the grapes are tasted and found to be sufficiently ripe and concentrated.
Vinification
The grapes are entirely hand picked, destemmed, crushed, and fermented in stainless steel vats. The temperature is carefully monitored to ensure excellent aromatic expression. Eternité stays on the skins for a long time to promote the gentle extraction of voluptuous tannins.
Maturing
It ages for a year, partly in vat and partly in new oak barrels, to enable the different grape varieties to marry and produce the best possible results.
Varietals
Grenache noir
Syrah

Tasting advices

Tasting notes
A wonderfully aromatic bouquet with overtones of black fruit, blueberries, and spice, accompanied by hints of vanilla. Lovely balance on the palate with a silky texture and velvety tannin. Round and full-bodied. Long, lingering aftertaste with fruit and liquorice nuances, leading to a richly satisfying sensation of… eternity.
Food pairing
A great wine that is well-suited to veal sweetbreads fried in olive oil, roast beef with morel mushrooms, coq au vin, and scrambled eggs with truffles.
