Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge

2017

50% Grenache and 50% Syrah; half of the grapes for the blend are de-classified Laudun Village and half are just outside the appellation.

The terroir of Laudun distinguishes Pélaquié from other southern Rhône appellations. The wines from this side of the river typically have higher acidity, with soils made lighter by sand mixed with clay and limestone. The sandy soils and cooler microclimate are also extremely important for the cultivation of Syrah and Viognier, which produce their finest wines in the cooler regions of the northern Rhône, 50-70 miles to the north.
