Chateau DU SEUIL Coteaux-d'Aix-en-Provence Rouge 2018
Wine Region: Provence - France
Grape: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting notes: Intense red color, powerful with tannins present but silky, red, and black fruits notes.
About the winery: The Chateau du Seuil sits on the Puyricard plateau at an altitude between 350 and 350 meters, the highest site in Aix-en-Provence. While the estate's grounds cover nearly 300 hectares, only 55 hectares are planted to vines while another portion is dedicated to olive oil production. Sitting on an ancient fault line, the terroir is incredibly complex: clay, chalk, and rocks, with layers of iron-laden limestone, and big pebble. The vineyards benefit from the dry hot climate which is moderated by the Mistral wind.
