Grenache Noir Maccabeu Grenache Gris

Winegrower's note

The appellation covers some 86 municipalities in the Pyrénées-Orientales and 9 in the Aude region. The soils are mainly coarse granite and gneiss sand, along with brown and black schist and some plots of red limestone.

Winemaker's note

The white varieties are vinified by fermenting the must after the pressing, in its liquid phase. For the red varieties, the must is macerated in contact with the skins. The fortification halts the action of the yeast before it has converted all the sugar into alcohol. This is how Rivesaltes wines retain part of the natural sweetness contained in the fruit. The wines are matured in wooden casks which they can carry on maturing gently for over fifty years.

Tasting notes

Boasting a beautiful amber colour with brickred tints, this cuvee exhales lovely notes of truffle, dried fruits such as hazelnuts and currants, and cinnamon. Pure velvet on the palate, with an endless finish.

Food and Wine Pairing

This wine can be paired with blue cheeses, walnut cheese, spicy duck, or simply as an after-dinner drink, with or without a cigar.
