Chat Fou Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge
85% Grenache/15% Clairette/Viognier/Chasselas/other. All of the fruit comes from Texier’s warm, granite-soiled 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, with no punching down. Aged for a year in concrete before bottling with only 15 g/l of sulfur max. The intention is a fresh, light style of Côtes-du-Rhône.
