A Fleur de Pampre Visan Cotes du Rhone Villages Rouge (750ml)
Domaine la Florane owns 75.5 ha of land in the Southern Rhône, 38.5 ha dedicated to vines and the other 37 ha consisting of woodland, olive trees, and lavender. The vines are spread out over two appellations: Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Visan, (24 ha, south-facing, 280-380 metres) and Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Saint-Maurice (14.5 ha, north/north-east facing, 380-410 metres). Lead by head winemaker Adrien (along with his father, François), the family strives to let their vines grow as naturally as possible, respecting fauna and flora- they farm their vineyards according to the principles of the biodynamic calendar.
On the nose, red fruit occupy the bouquet- mainly cherry, cranberry, and raspberry. On the palate, red and black fruit dominant with wonderfully lively acidity. Pair with charcuterie, your favourite type of pizza, or service alongside a variety of grilled sausages.
Made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, and Carignan, the grapes come 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.
