Bright ruby red. Smells of raspberry, liquorice and meatiness. It has juicy texture, grainy tannins and acidity in balance with the fruit.
A bright, ruby red, raspeberry fruit, savoury, finely textured Grenache dominant Cotes-du-Rhone, with a wee bit of Syrah for body. It is juicy & elegant with some tannins at the finish to compliment light meaty dishes.
Estézargues is a unique winemaking cooperative, located 20 minutes from Avignon in the south fo the Rhone Valley. First established in 1965, they shifted over to natural winemaking with the arrival of Jean-François Nicqin 1980, a talented winemaker influenced by the ideas of natural wine legends like Marcel Lapierre. This put them firmly on track towards respectful farming and using practically no additives in the cellar.
They use no commercial yeast, no enzymes, no gum arabic, no acidifiers, and just a tiny amount of SO2 at bottling if needed, to make sure the wines are safe to travel.
