Col de L'Orb Saint-Chinian

£13.90 £12.00

SKU: COLDELORBCHINIAN

Description

This blend of Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Mourvedre from Cave de Roquebrun carefully selects grapes from individual plots across St Chinian. The grapes undergo carbonic maceration where the weight of the fruit naturally gently presses out the juice. Traditional vinification techniques are followed by ageing in stainless steel vats.

Col de L'Orb has succulent peppery black fruit aromas with a supporting leather tone. Round and smooth in style, the palate sees bright bramble fruit and ripe berry flavours with fantastic depth. Fine grained tannins provide good structure on a lasting finish. Try with grilled red meats, goats or blue cheese.

Roquebrun is an attractive medieval town in the Languedoc’s Black Mountains. The well run co-operative here makes some exceptional wines which are centred on the elevated hills of the Saint-Chinian appellation. Soils of argilo limestone and smooth pebbles help retain the day’s heat and radiate it at night. Some of the vines are more than twenty years old.
