Estézargues’ flagship red blend that seeks to showcase Cinsault – a traditional Rhone-Valley grape that is often considered only a “blending-material” yet produces very pleasant wines when coming from old vines with tamed yields, as is the case here.
Making of: 10-15 days maceration at temperatures around 20 degrees Celsius, followed by settling in tanks until next spring. No external yeast and no enzymes are employed during the winemaking process, bottled without fining or filtration.
Tasting Note: Garnet in the glass with shimmering highlights. Elegant notes of smoky red fruit, violet, sweet herb and a note of baking chocolate. The palate is rich with ripe cherry and berry flavors, and a mineral note that is followed by supple acidity and velvety tannins. This is a very expressive red with a great concentration of fruit that is never overly extracted. The wine finishes with floral notes and a dash of black pepper.
Pairing: Works wonders with grilled chicken and pork, cold cuts, or simply by itself.
The co-op cellar was established in 1965 in a small village just 20 mins from the city of Avignon.
As early as the 1980s, the members led by talented vigneron Jean-Francois Nicq embarked on the path of making quality wines without additives.
Nowadays, Estézargues is one of the rare cooperatives of this size (if not the only one) whose growers are nearly all certified organic and make wines without any additions, save for the occasional sulfur at bottling.
Together with their big focus on vinifying many terroirs separately to let them fully shine through (another thing uncommon for co-ops), this brings out wines with an incredible value for money.
