APPELLATION: Collioure

VINEYARD: Domaine de la Rectorie. With a history that dates back to 1984, this family business has infused a long line of experience into the crafting of high-quality wines. With climate change, the vineyard has taken a more natural approach to the agriculture, favouring the lands protected from excess heat. This has allowed for the cultivation of more resistant vines, producing grapes full of flavour.

GRAPES: 90% Grenache gris, and 10% Grenache blanc.

AGEING: Ager for eight months directly on its lees.

PREPARATION: After harvesting, the grapes are directly pressed and fermented in oak barrels with a strict battonage schedule. The must is stirred every day while in the fermentation stage, and once completed, it is done once a week. The last three months prior to bottling, the wine is left unstirred to enhance its character.

PAIRING: Perfect to be served with fish, white meat, and cow or sheep hard cheese.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 10-12°C

ALCOHOL: 14%

4 /5

Pale crystalline dress. Complex nose with floral, vanilla and mineral notes. On the palate we find a rather round attack, balanced, finesse, and notes of minerality due to the terroir.
