About This Wine:

STAINED LABELS

The Chaudière Family started this cuvée in 1990 and chose the name "Quintessence" to highlight the exception and the concentration of this wine. Complex and powerful yet with a great balance and a beautiful freshness, it is the result of a drastic parcel selection. Soil Clay and limestone soil at an altitude between 250 and 350 meters (800 and 1 150 feet).

Grapes: 80% Syrah, 20% Grenache (50 years old vines and more). Yields between 30 and 35 hl/ha.

Vinification:
The grapes are selected, crushed, and destemmed. Three to four weeks maceration with traditional air pumping over.
Aged twelve to fifteen months in barrels: 40% of which are new and 60% of which are two to three years old. Bottled at the Château.


Tasting notes

Color: Dark purple.
Nose: black berries (cherry), garrigues and black olives notes.
Mouth: very ample structure, richness and power balanced by the freshness of the Ventoux terroir, garrigues, black cherry and tarry notes with velvety tannins.

Soft cheeses (camembert, brie...) and possibly red fruits and/or chocolate desserts. Serve at a maximum temperature of 18°C (64°F) Put in a carafe in its early years.
