50Cl Le Caillou, Vin De France Red 2011

50Cl Le Caillou, Vin De France Red 2011

Ref: A9500

A deliciously rich sweet red, full of crystalised cherry flavours and aromas. The perfect pairing to chocolate, blue cheese and Christmas pudding.

Biodynamic and Organic.

The highly motivated and energetic Vincent Rochette is only in his early 30's but has already made a name for himself with his superbly sculpted Visan and Côtes du Rhones. He owns land in both the communes of Visan and Buisson and this diversity of terroirs largely explains the extraordinary complexity in his wines. Very careful selection is carried out in the vineyards and in the winery and there is minimum intervention during the fermentation and ageing processes. Over the past few years, Vincent has been edging towards a truly bio-dynamic vineyard and, although he is a year or so away from achieving this, all the preparatory work that he has put in place can clearly be seen in the sheer purity of his wines. A walk in the vineyard block behind the winery in spring revealed a fantastic eco-system where wildlife, insects, flowers and fauna, that had long disappeared, had returned in abundance. The vines were in fine health as they had not been treated with any man-made sprays for the past five years. This indeed was one of the 'happiest' vineyards that we had ever visited!

"Le Caillou" is created from those great vintages that permit late harvesting and from a vineyard that originally belonged to Vincent Rochette's grandmother, located to the west of the village of Visan at an altitude of 140 metres.

Champagne Gremillet
Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
