Regular price

We have always loved Eric Texier...
This is 85% Grenache with 15% Clairette, Viognier, Chasselas, other... All of the fruit comes from the warm site and granite soils of Texier's St.Julien-en-St.Alban vineyard. The varieties are co-harvested and fermented in whole clusters, gently pressed, fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks with a brief 5-day maceration. Aged for a year in concrete before bottling with barely any sulphur. The intention is a fresh, light style of Côtes-du-Rhône.
