Costes Cirgues Saint Cyr sulphite free wine
Deep opaque ruby in colour. Swirl it round in the glass and the nose really opens up. Big damson and plum flavours in the mouth. Very smooth and balanced.

Grape varieties: 100% Grenache Noir
Surface: 1.5 ha
Yield: 40 hl/ha
Harvest: Manually in picking crates
Vinification: The grapes are de-stemmed and vinified in thermo-regulated concrete tanks. Daily punch-down of the cap allows gentle extraction of the aromatic compounds and polyphenols. No added sulfites.
Tasting: The Grenache Noir grape is what gives this wine its purple-red robe. Its bouquet reflects the scents of the garrigue accompanied by black berry fruits. In the mouth we find blackberry and bilberry flavors bursting with freshness. A rich, delicate, gourmet wine that elegantly showcases a variety typical of the region.
