Generous wine on the nose and palate, CERRIS is an aromatic cuvée both pure and elegant, made from Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. This blend offers velvety tannins and a pleasant depth.
After a manual harvest and a traditional vinification, the wine is matured during eighteen months in old barrels in order to make the best of this creative yet generous blend between these three mediterranean grape varieties.
CERRIS - vintage 2018 - made its entry in La Tulipe Rouge’s Rhone Valley Wine Guide and earned a score of 2 tulips :
" Undeniably northern on the nose, this wine dresses up black fruits and pepper with a delicately tannic substance that is both full and savory, stretching long on the finish.
It's remarkably easy to drink and remarkably well executed. A must-try. "
