Chateau Saint-Roch Rouge, 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%
