Category: 15% ABV, Château Capion, France, Grenache Noir, Languedoc, Mourvedre, Roussillon, Syrah
"I tasted this impressive blend of 70% Syrah with 20% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre some two months before bottling. It’s an impressive achievement for the new Capion team’s first full vintage, proving just how much potential these vineyards have. It's a saturated dark black-red in colour, with tender, pure scents of super-fine plum, blackcurrant and blackberry, and not a splinter of wood too much. After this fresh yet delicate aroma, the palate is deep, refined, structured and resonant. The tannins are supple yet supportive, lending a little amplitude to that magnificent plunge of pure fruit. 93-95 points."

The hand-picked harvest (using small crates) is stored in a refrigerated room before manual sorting. Once the grapes are crushed, the must is pumped into stainless-steel thermo-regulated vats.
After cold pre-fermentation maceration, the yeast is co-inoculated to start alcohol fermentation. The must is in the thermo-regulated vats for 21 to 28 days
Perfect with grilled meat, or pork loin served with seasonal vegetables
