Rimauresq ‘R’ Cru Classé Rouge, Côtes de Provence (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
The exceptional terroir of this renowned estate results in wines of elegance and complexity with long term cellaring potential. For the Rimauresq R Rouge, the best parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache Noir were selected from micro-terroir in Pignan and traditionally vinified, with manual pigeage and remontage (pumping over). Aged for 12 months in a combination of oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 2nd fill and 1/3 3rd fill) the wine is lightly filtered before being bottled at the estate.
Heady aromas of tobacco are followed by a rich and intense palate which, although still young, is immensely concentrated with dark berry fruit, chalky tannins and great length. This will develop into a smooth, richly textured wine.
A perfect match for rich casseroles such as a Daube de Boeuf à la Provençale flavoured with olives and Provençale herbs, or a gutsy Ratatouille.
