C de Centeilles rouge
C de Centeilles Rouge
The C de Centeilles is the fulfilment of the winemaker’s life: browsing through the old vines, noting the unknown grape varieties, identifying them, fetching the stocks, checking their state of health, then multiplying them; that is the price to pay for finding and replanting the old Languedoc grape varieties.
After several trials of vinification and assembly, this cuvée revealed the originality of those forgotten varieties: the Piquepoul Noir, the Riveyrenc Noir & Verdal, the Morrastel Noir à jus blanc and the Œillade.
This wine, a beautiful ruby red with violet lights, expresses aromas of raspberry and morello cherry with a hint of liquorice and garrigue scents. It is full on the palate, the supple and soft tannins give way to fruit, and the whole is enhanced by a touch of freshness.
It has a southern accent with its aromas of the garrigue and ripe fruits and will go well with small game and with meats prepared with spices and aromatic herbs. To be served lightly chilled.
