Rhône with its accessible Grenache
Sylvie Vacheron and Bruno Gaspard, owners of the famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape domain Le Clos du Caillou, make an unparalleled and very accessible red Côtes du Rhône. The grapes come from a sixty-year-old vineyard with mainly grenache (90%), supplemented with syrah, counoise and mourvèdre.
That vineyard borders Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the commune of Courthezon and is farmed entirely organically. The hand-picked grapes ferment in traditional concrete vats, after which the wine partly matures in large oak casks.
The aim of Vacheron and Gaspard is to make this wine as elegant as possible, while retaining the spiciness and fruit notes of the grenache.
This incredibly beautiful Côtes du Rhône is therefore not a dark-colored solid wine. Precisely because of its accessibility and great refinement, it far exceeds the average quality of this well-known designation of origin. Feel free to serve the wine slightly chilled in the summer, at about 15 to 16˚C.
