Marrenon - COTE DU RHONE - 75cl - Les Belles Echappées
Follow the river! Along the length of its winding waters and gentle banks, Côtes du Rhône vineyards thrive across 171 rich and varied terroirs and vineyards, all bathed in the same bountiful sun. Take the time to explore them: their variety and distinctive characters are sure to surprise. Among them, unsuspected gems await discovery... The vineyards of AOC Côtes du Rhône work in harmony with a single same aim: to give you the best wines, from culture to assembly.
Black Grenache (40% minimum), the base variety, brings fruity flavours, warmth, and body. Syrah and Mourvèdre give the wine their spicy aromas, and a color and structure suitable for ageing. Cinsault adds to the wine’s finesse.
The appellation includes five main soil types. The pebbly soil of the clayey earth, stony soils, and stony spread soils (on inclines) provide the vines with a regular water supply, and throughout the night they continue to radiate the heat stored by the rocks during the day. The earth is especially suited to the production of wines intended for ageing.
Dark red robe, typical nose but still very delicate with aromas of ripe red fruits (raspberry, strawberry, red currant) and a hint of spices. In the mouth, the wine is generous and powerful with fine tannins.
Best drunk within 3 years. Ideal with grilled meat, served at 16°C.
