A Fleur de Pampre Visan Cotes du Rhone Villages Rouge (750ml)
Domaine la Florane is a father and son team of biodynamic wine producers crafting wines in the southern Rhône Valley in the appellations of Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Visan and Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Saint-Maurice. In addition to cultivating wine grapes and producing wine, they grow olive trees and lavender.
Domaine Florane owns 24 hectares of vineyards in Visan. Altitude ranges from 280 to 380 metres. The sites are in a south-facing valley – called a “coste chaude” (sunny hillside). The Mediterranean Sea once covered the Rhône Valley, and met with rivers that flowed down the young mountains of La Lance and Ventoux, conveying large amounts of sand and clay which were captured by the coastal currents.
Cherry red and highly approachable, this wine has perfect balance. A seductive cuvée at any hour, packed with ripe fruit underlaid by supple rounded tannins. Best enjoyed at room temperature or slightly cooler.
The Visan rouge was conceived to be a young and convivial wine. It is a blend of Grenache / Syrah / Cinsault / Carignan from vines grown at 300 metres altitude in clay-rich soils, and about 30 years old. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats, then aged on fine lees in concrete vats.
