From the Grower
"TASTING NOTES:Nose: Ripe black fruits, plum pudding and warm spices.Palate: Full-bodied and velvety with dark berry flavours carrying on from the nose, evolving to hints of coffee and black forest gateau. Excellent balance and well-structured tannins, coupled with a pleasing freshness, give this wine great length."

Additional Information

VINIFICATION: The grapes are hand-harvested into small containers, then crushed but not destemmed. Wild yeast fermentation and maceration for 4 weeks in open barrels (600L demi muid). The mature stems have been kept in order to naturally aerate the must during fermentation, allowing us to bring different nuances of tannin and acidity to the wine. Malolactic fermentation and maturation in aged French oak demi-muid for 30 months. Hand bottled at the Domaine by gravity and without filtration. Minimal sulphite addition. Lunatique is our prestige cuvee made from a parcel of Grenache planted in 1910. It is only made in exceptional years and has extended ageing potential.
something
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.
