Domaine LE SANG DES CAILLOUX Vacqueyras "Cuvee Floureto" 2016

Wine Region: Rhone-Valley - France

Grape
: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Mourvedre, Carignan

Tasting notes: The nose offers an aromatic framework on the power of black fruit with notes of blueberries, nuanced by plum, fig and sweet spices. The palate shows a good balance with a silky and intense substance with structuring tannins, for a finish that lingers with elegance.

About the winery:
Serge Ferigoule bought Le Sang des Cailloux in 1990, after working for ten years with the former owner. From there, he stops chemical weeding and then synthetic products. The 17 hectares, in Vacqueyras Appellations, are located on a plateau facing the Dentelles de Montmirail. His son, Frederi, joined him in 2003. They decided to have the estate certified organic and then biodynamic. With its clay-limestone terroir, reddish-brown, and its rolled pebbles, Le Sang des Cailloux mainly produces red.
