Cuvée Collection rouge - 2017
AOP Coteaux d'Aix en Provence - 75cl
VINEYARDS AND WINERY :
Organic viticulture demands precision and consistency. At La Commanderie de la Bargemone we monitor our processes closely all year round, both in the vineyard and the winery. Our grapes are harvested at night to preserve freshness.
The fruit is cooled again and placed in tanks. The musts are subsequently pumped over twice a day, and racked and returned twice during fermentation. 50% is then aged in stainless steel tanks and 50% in oak barrels.

Although not widely used in Provence, Cabernet-Sauvignon appears in many of the La Bargemone blends. This is a late-ripening variety, delivering freshness, acidity and red berry flavours. Syrah gives a deliciously fruity, spicy, floral complexity, and there’s a light but discernible touch of oak for added tannic structure.
