Cave la Vinsobraise Grenat

Cave la Vinsobraise Grenat

New Vintage 2016!  Its earthiness comes from the Grenache (65%) which also imparts an intriguing richness. Serve this Southern Rhône red as an aperitif on its own, or with typical red wine foods, both simple and elegant.

About This Wine:
The Cave in Vinsobres is a cooperative winery. Vinsobres is located at the top of a mountain and provides south-facing slopes at higher altitudes that allow production of high-quality grapes. Because of this terrain and its reputation for quality, Vinsobres is the first village in the Drôme to receive a Cru designation for its wines. This is the highest designation available for villages and requires the producers to restrict the numbers of acres of production to maintain quality. While wines from Vinsobres are available throughout Europe, the Cave's wines have never been exported to the U.S. Pascal Monier, Director of the Cave, is the second generation of his family to run it -- he took over from his father and has been the driving force behind the AOC's awarding of cru status to Vinsobres. Cuvée Grenat is made from 65% Grenache and 35% Syrah, which is a little more Syrah-heavy than the typical 70/30 blend you find in the region. That makes it a great aperitif on its own as well as pairing with red-wine foods, both simple and elegant.
