Chateau Saint-Roch Limoux 2016

Designation

Limoux AOP

 

Vinification

The Merlot and Cabernet Franc are mechanically harvested at night whereas the Malbec is harvested manually. The grapes then go through cold pre-fermentation maceration. Each grape variety is vinified separately before the wine is assembled. The fermentation is malolactic. The wine is aged for 8 months in oak barrels.

 

Soil

The large size of the vineyard provides a rich diversity of soil that enables the winemaker to show original expressions.

 

Characteristics

Nose: Intense fruity nose with notes of morello cherry and mocha.

Colour: Deep ruby.

Palate: Elegant yet fruity wine with fine tannins and a persisting finish.

 

Food Pairing Recommendations

Ideal with tagines, ham soaked in port, duck fillet, roasted pork, game or Brie de Meaux.

 

Grapes

Merlot 50%, Malbec 40%, Cabernet Franc 10%
