Producer: Mont Rocher
Southern France, with its multifarious regions, indigenous grapes, cultures and traditions is home to some of the most exciting, characterful wines in the world at present. Mont Rocher is a collection of wines produced from indigenous varieties, produced in a style that lets them clearly express their varietal typicity and sense of place. Pure, authoritative packaging that lets the wines do the talking meets delicious, well balanced wines that offer a taste of the real France.
Sourced from small parcels of vines in the South of France and focus on intriguing varietals that are indigenous to that region.
Picked at their optimal ripeness, in mid September, the grapes are de-stemmed then crushed, finally they undergo a three weeks maceration in order to extract carefully all their quality. The extraction is made by pumping over during the first ten days of maceration. The wine gains its fruit complexity and juicy flavours with a small part being aged with oak staves.
Deep in colour with ripe plum, blackberries and cherries on the nose. This is rich and rounded wine with perfectly balanced tannins. The long finish is smooth and succulent.
This wine cries out for bbq meat or strong cheeses.
