Name: Côtes de Provence AOP
1x bottle 75cl
At Château Les Valentines we have always privileged the elaboration of great reds of Provence.
The diversity of the grape varieties vinified and the strength of the terroir give complex reds, with a rich substance, associated with an aromatic palette dominated by spices.
On the coastal edge of the Côtes de Provence Appellation, the very particular climate (sun, mistral and sea influence) allows each year a great regularity of the vintages, which over the years have learned to make speak an exceptional terroir.
Grape varieties: Grenache (20%), Syrah (20%), Mourvèdre (20%), Cabernet-Sauvignon (20%), and 100 year old Carignan (20%).
Soil: On a mica-schist terroir, the cultivation method is traditional, with permanent tillage, without weed killers or insecticides. Certified Organic Wine by ECOCERT.
Vinification: The grapes are vinified and matured in 80 hl truncated conical oak vats and 228 liter Burgundy barrels from the forests of the Allier.
Tasting Notes: Château Les Valentines Red 2014 reveals a fresh and straightforward nose with aromatic notes of violet, liquorice and crème de cassis. On the palate the toasted notes bring complexity to a wine where dry herbs, rosemary, garrigue and ripe fruit dominate. Well coated tannins, carried by a beautiful minerality. A red emblematic of the terroir of Provence, which can be discovered young on its greediness or left to age in the cellar for 7 to 10 years.
