Vidal-Fleury Cotes du Rhone 2012

Vidal-Fleury Cotes du Rhone 2012

Sku: 202008

A classic bistro wine. Medium bodied, with fine fruit, good acidity and ultra-fine tannin. Goes with most foods, except for a bloody steak or the lightest fish.

Wine Advocate 87 points:
Slightly better, with more depth and length, the 2011 Cotes du Rhone (65% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre and other permitted varieties) exhibits attractive olive, licorice and plum nuances in a medium-bodied, nicely fruited and balanced package. It too is geared for near term drinking.

Wine maker notes
Grenache (65%), Syrah (20%), Mourvèdre (10%), some others with Carignan (5%).

Technical notes
Long and traditional maceration: 2 weeks with Grenache and 3 weeks with Syrah and Mourvèdre. A lot of "délestage" at the beginning of fermentation. Fermentation with Indigenous yeast. Controlled temperature for maceration at 30°C. 100% malolactic fermentation. Aged on lees 70% in tanks and 30% in large barrels (foudres). Natural clarification and stabilization by settling and one filtration (Cross Flow). Unfined. Maturation in bottle: at least 3 months before shipment.
