The demand for the Armenier sisters' Côtes du Rhône cuvée far outstrips supply and we sadly do not get nearly enough to go around! The wine is mostly drawn from old vines on the edge of the Châteauneuf vineyards, near Orange (one hectare at Maucoil and one hectare at Bois Lauzon), with a slug of Lirac from the Estate's biodynamically tended vineyards there. The harvesting is done by hand and the fruit is given a cold soak to bring out all those lovely, juicy, bright aromatics and flavours you find in the glass. Fermentation is in cement tanks with wild yeast and the wine rests on skins for a total of two weeks. It then rests on lees for an additional ten months before being bottled without fining or filtration.
