Terroir known for its framed red and empyreumatic in the north, lighter on fruit aromas in the south, this appellation of the Hérault rises in the range in rosé.
Evidence of this is the Château de Gragnos cuvée, a 17-hectare estate of vineyards, some of which are over 90 years old, rooted in the Saint-Chinian terroir. In organic conversion, the farm covers an area of about 70 ha of scrubland and forests.
A blend of grenache and mourvèdre, this 2021 vintage seduces with the brilliance of its carmine-colored dress. The nose is expressed in notes of ripe red fruit, crushed strawberry. This aromatic persists on a tender and tonic with a spicy touch at the end.
These spicy notes go well with friendly exotic cuisine such as couscous or merguez barbecue. We tasted it with a layer of saffron bream. The perfect deal.
