Marrenon Inventa Les Grès AOC Ventoux
Soil: The Sandstones on the Ventoux appellation represent differentiated soils from the Monts du Vaucluse, on their southern slope. These are limestone soils, with strong stoniness. They do not stress in strong heat, but that gives little vigor to the vines. Grenache shines there, with very low yields, under 30hl / ha, the wines are dense, with a nice minerality, without excessive density.
Main grape varietal: Grenache
Harvest and Vinification: The in-depth knowledge of the selected plots makes it possible to harvest at the optimum maturity of the Grenache. The alcoholic fermentation is at a controlled temperature. Fermentation is long. Attention is paid to the work of the pomace cap to reveal the quintessence of the tannins. Aging is 22 months, without racking, in French oak barrels, selected with the utmost rigor.
Tasting notes: The nose is intense, the aromas of very ripe red berries (raspberry), end with discreet notes of leather and spices. The attack is carried by very intense fruits, subtle notes of marshmallow, but also aromas of raspberry liqueur. The mouth, on the other hand, is defined by the finesse, length, and fruit purity. Generosity is framed by tannins which in the end exalt delicate notes of leather and tobacco.
Sommelier Advice: This wine will go perfectly with a dessert with cherries and bitter chocolate (with a high percentage of cocoa) but also with a filet mignon of veal with truffle or a rib of beef.
