Description
RAVOIRE & FILS has crafted RHÔNE TO THE BONE® as a true expression of a great Côtes du Rhône wine.
Together with our in-house oenologist Pierre Vieillescazes and his team, including Vallée du Rhône specialist ,Philippe Cambie–named “BestOenologist of the Year 2010” by Robert Parker (The Wine Advocate)- we are pleased tointroduce RHÔNE TO THE BONE®.
  • Varietals: 65% Grenache,35% Syrah
  • Vineyards: Estates : a range of carefully selected typical and complementary terroirs from the southern Rhône Valley (clay-limestone, red clay and rolled pebbles).
  • Average age of the vines: 40 years.
  • Climate: Mediterranean climate, warm and dry with Mistral wind.
WINE MAKING
  • Vinification: the grapes are picked at their optimal maturity. A daily release is performed during fermentation with one or two pump-overs to extract a maximum of material. This contributes to achieve the desired structure and richness, and is followed by a long 4-5weeks maceration period during which the lees are stirred in order to enhance the overall smoothness and roundness of the wine.
  • Maturing: on fine lees for 12 months in stainless steel vats
TASTING NOTES:
  • Dark red colour with purple hues. The nose is dominated by subtle aromas of crystalized black fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant) with notes of liquorice. The mouthfeel is rich and concentrated with silky tannins and a remarkably persistent finish.
  • Best served at 63°F/17°C.
  • Alcohol: 14% vol.
  • Total acidity :3,27g H2SO4/l
  • Dryred wine: <1gram / liter of residual sugar.
