Domaine Champ-Long 'Tradition', Ventoux 2016

Tasting Note

Bright and fruity with aromas of ripe red fruits, wild strawberries and raspberries. The red fruit flavours are echoed on the supple, round palate of this easy drinking wine.

Producer Note

Nestled in the foothills of the Mont Ventoux, on the Princes of Orange route, is the Domaine de Champ-Long. The sheltered and exceptionally sunny estate covers 30 hectares, straddling the Ventoux and Côtes du Rhône appellations. An exceptional diversity of terroirs contributes to the complexity of these fine wines, which are vinified using methods that fuse traditional skills with modern technology. Owners Béatrice, Christian and Jean-Christophe Gely, cultivate their passion for wine in this beautiful countryside, on the estate which has belonged to the family since 1820.

Vineyard

The vines are grown on a blend of terroirs: pebbly and sandy plateaus and limestone marl slopes, each impartng their own characteristics to the final wine and adding to its subtle complexity. Aged between 10 and 30 years old, the vines yield 45 hectolitres/ hectare.

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested by hand, de-stemmed, lightly crushed and cold soaked for 48 hours. Fermentation took place in concrete vats at 20°C, with racking and daily pumping over. The fermentation was kept short, five to six days, in order to obtain a fruity wine with little tannin. The wine was then aged for one year in concrete vats to maintain its fresh and fruity style.

Serving Suggestion

A versatile wine, which pairs well with roast chicken, grilled marinated meats, pasta dishes and stuffed vegetables.
