Cochon D'Or Reserve Rouge 2018

From approximately 40-year-old vines planted across the Pays d'Herault region, this sunny corner of France has grapes that ripen to full maturity and express great varietal character.

The grapes are harvested at optimal ripeness, destemmed and divided into two lots. One undergoes the modern process of hot skin contact maceration. After that, the juice goes through cool temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks. This procedure is carried out in order to extract and enhance the varietal’s aromatic qualities. The other lot is fermented traditionally on their skins for about ten days, adding structure to the wine. At the end of the winemaking process both the modern and the traditional section are blended to a youthful and easy drinking wine.

Intense red in color with beautiful flavors of red berries, like raspberry and cassis, amplified with slightly minty notes. Smooth, round and full-bodied on the fruity palate and some spicy notes in the finish. Excellent with classic French bistro dishes and hearty Spanish stews.
