Le Clocher, AOC Côtes du Rhône Villages Visan, Rouge, 2019

Story

The wine
Famous for its bell tower and its typically Provençal alleys, the village of Visan is also a famous place for viticulture. Its proximity to the Cru Vinsobres, the most northerly in the region, and its tendency to conquer the hills give freshness and elegance to its wines. The bell tower of the village, which marks the silhouette of the landscape perfectly embodies their style: they compete in taste length and longevity.

Advice

Tasting notes
Floral notes such as lavender and violet matched with black fruits such as blackcurrant, enveloped by silky tannins will evolve gracefully towards aromas of garrigue and undergrowth over the years.
Food pairing
Serve at room temperature (16-18 ° C) on grilled red meats, in particular, but it will also accompany the best dishes with nobility.
