VINEYARD:
Situated in Sainte-Cécile-Les-Vignes, Domaine Rouge-Bleu uses organic farming principles on all of its 9ha, of which four lie in the Côtes du Rhône appellation.
The low yield is the natural outcome of very old, deep-rooted vines that sit on a stony soil of ancient riverbed, which, when coupled with the Mediterranean climate of long, hot, dry summers (including the mould-inhibiting Mistral wind), ensures excellent berry maturation.

VINIFICATION:
The hand-harvested grapes are not destemmed before being put into small porous concrete tanks for fermentation. The mature stems have been kept in order to naturally aerate the must during the winemaking process, bringing sediments and natural acidity to the wine to balance the alcohol and tannins. Maceration of 10-14 days with three pump-overs a week during this time. Matured for 12 months in aged French oak barrels for 50% of the production. Bottled at the domaine.

12 000 bottles produced.
