CHATEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE TRINITE RED

 

Power and finesse equal a truly great wine.

This is a tiger waiting to pounce: gentle and sleek to look at, its power almost palpable,yet walking on paws of velvet. Then an explosion of black fruit: cassis, blackberries, black cherries and notes of roasting coffee, fully expressed in a beautifully long finish

Excellent ageing potential.

Côtes du Rhône « ECLIPSE » Red

 

Florian André offers his best selection of the Cotes du Rhone Terroirs. Eclipse is elaborated in organic agriculture with the most environmental respect, following Florian’s philosophy. It refers to the plots of syrah exposed northeast,

which eclipse alternatively the sun and the moon. The grenaches

planted south are bathed in sun and swept by the Mistral. This is a fine and intense Côtes du Rhône, with depth and balance. Intense flavours of red fruit blend with scents of

the garrigue, gradually melding together to give a long, spicy finish.
