La Croix du Chêne
AOP Costières de Nîmes
Details of the wine
The soils are highly typical of the appellation with large smooth stones from alluvial deposits from the Rhone and Durance rivers on a clay-limestone subsoil.
50% Grenache, 25% Marsanne, 25% Roussanne.
The grapes are harvested when perfectly ripe then destemmed and cold-macerated for the time required to achieve the depth of colour wanted. After pressing adapted to the different types of grapes, followed by settling, the must is fermented at controlled temperature to enhance the expression of the fruit.
Golden with bright tints. Great elegance from its fragrance of citrus fruit (grapefruit) and white flowers. It is nicely lively on the palate where it will open up and go wonderfully with seafood. Serve at around 10-12°C.
To be enjoyed within a year of bottling.
