Domaine la Rouviole - Vin de France - Cuvée le Revenant 2013

The Blend : 90 % Carignan, 10% Grenache.

The Harvest : After disbudding in May and a green harvest in July, we hand harvest twice in September, picking  only the finest  grapes  with optimal maturity from the very best plots of the vineyard.

The vines are 30 years old.

Wine Making Process : We de-stem our grapes and practice traditional vinification of each grape variety separately.

The vatting time is 3 weeks; the fermentation process is in stainless steel tanks.

Aging : in French and American oak barrels (third wine) for the Grenache only.

The Carignan is aged in stainless steel tanks to keep its purest expression of red fruit and finesse.

Then the wines are blended once the best balance has been found.

Production : 3700  bottles.

Serving Suggestions : Great with leg of lamb, stuffed quaIls and guinea fowl.

Optimal Serving Temperature : 15°C.

All our wines are made exclusively from our own grapes

Aged, matured and bottled at the estate.
