Chateau Unang La Gardy 2016 AOC Ventoux

La Gardy 2016
AOC Ventoux, Red Organic wine

Grapes: Grenache, Syrah, Roussanne. Yields of 15-30 hl/hectare, hand-harvested.

Tasting: there is a bright ruby color to this wine and on the nose, notes of cherry and chocolate combine with subtle aromas of liquorice and cinnamon. A mineral character then emerges accompanied by smoky touch of tobacco.

Terroir: the highest vines (350m altitude) of Unang are used for the reds. This wine comes from our oldest Grenache, planted on the terraces. We are on a geology dominated by limestone, the vines oriented to the north and east are protected by the hill on hot summer afternoons.

Vinification: after the fermentation, the wine ages in 600 litres barrels between 12 and 18 months. The contribution of a white grape brings a little more acidity. The wine is then bottled and aged for two more years in our cellar before distribution.

Notes: serve around 15 ° C. Can be drunk now although still young, and can be kept for 5+ from now. It has the characteristics of ripe Grenache and agrees well with pigeon-en-croute as well red meats and chocolate fondant.
