Additional Information

VINIFICATION: The hand-harvested grapes are crushed but not destemmed before being put into traditional concrete tanks for fermentation with indigenous yeast. The mature stems have been kept in order to aerate the must during fermentation, allowing us to naturally maintain a lower temperature of fermentation and bringing different nuances of tannin and acidity to the wine. Maceration of 10-14 days with pump-overs every 2 days. Matured for a minimum of 18 months in concrete tank before release. Bottled at the Domaine. Minimal sulphite addition WINE AND FOOD MATCHING: Serve at room temperature or lightly chilled. This medium bodied wine makes a fine match for summer or winter dishes. Try it with vegetable salads, charcuterie, pizza, roast chicken or BBQs.
Caroline & Thomas are passionate about wine and nature. Having been in the wine trade for some years, Caroline as a trained winemaker and Thomas in sales, they decided to move to their favourite French region (The Rhone Valley) and to start searching for their dream vineyard. They took over Domaine Rouge-Bleu in August 2012. 8 hectares of very old vines in Sainte Cecile les Vignes, near Cairanne, on a great terroir mainly composed of garrigues, pebbles and clay from an old river bed. They bought these vines and a 400 year old farmhouse to take over a winery established in 2007. They farm the vines upon bio-dynamic principles and harvest beautiful grapes at very low yields. Vinification takes place in traditional concrete porous tanks with wild yeasts, without destemming and with minimum sulfur addition. Ageing occurs both in concrete tanks and in 8 to 10 year old French barrels. Production = 35 000 bottles which are mostly exported.
