Côtes du Rhone Villages Sablet Organic Red 2017
Terroir : Château COHOLA is a terraced organic vineyard in Provence located in a beautiful village called Sablet in the middle of Dentelles of Montmirail. Most of the vineyards are about 50 years old. We are in a privileged terroir where we can find truffles, cherries and famous wines.
The vineyard is on a scree terroir cedar and limestone enjoying the last rays of the setting sun.
Grape varieties : 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah
We produce only 20-25 Hl /Ha which explains the excellence of Rhône terroir.
Hand-harvested with friends after an omelet with truffles
Grenache and Syrah are vinified separately and saigné at 20%. Before fermentation, a cold maceration has been done from 4 to 7 days in order to capture the fruit that the terroir offers. Pressing after one month of maceration and sweat.
We do not add yeasts because indigenous yeasts present on the grape since spring know their job.
Malolactic fermentation in barrels with regular lees stirring.
Ageing of Syrah and Grenache is done separately until bottling.
Two extractions are performed before bottling.
Colour : intense and attractive ruby red colour
Nose : its clearness reveals aromas of the château COHOLA hills : juniper alternates with blueberries, thyme with rosemary and oak with truffles.
Taste : quite complex with a smooth and round texture. Sweetness and power of the attack in the final. Everything comes to tickle the taste buds.
Service : Serve at 16°C with truffles and mushrooms or a crispy lamb breast.
