Cuvee des Gouverneurs Rouge AOP Patrimonio Orenga de Gaffory, 2016


Grape Variety


Cuvée des Gouverneurs Rouge is starting to show some nice tertiary development with meaty gamey aromas combined with floral violet notes and pencil lead. It will need some more time to fully develop. On the lighter side of medium bodied, it has a supple mid palate with wild berry fruits, a firm acidity and grainy texture. Nielluccio was picked by hand, de-stemmed and crushed. After fermentation and malolactic in tank, it was matured in French oak barrels of 300 and 600 litres for twelve months using a third each of new, one-year-old and two-year-old barrels
