Tasting Notes

From Kermit Lynch Wine Merchants:

• Grapes sourced from La Crau, the lieu-dit that is known for the galet roulés, or rounded stones, that cover the vineyard as far as the eye can see
• Grapes are partially de-stemmed

• Traditional fermentation between 25-35 days in stainless steel cuve and wood cuves (all temperature-controlled)

• Wine rests in cement tank for 10 months, and then ages for another 12 months in foudres

• Wine is bottled unfiltered, after 22 months of aging

"This classic opens with a voluptuous aroma that gives and gives—it is striking

because of its charm and floral notes. How many Châteauneufs can boast of
those two traits?"
