This red wine, with its solid structure and seeming rusticity, veils true elegance, borne of poor soils made up of limestone, sandstone and sandy marl. The vineyard enjoys a sunny and particularly dry climate, bathed in the sea air from the Gulf of Bandol.
Grown differently from rosé wine, the Château Romassan vines dedicated to reds are mainly planted with Mourvèdre, a grape variety characterised by its solidity, structure and great capacity for ageing. The main component in this blend, Mourvèdre is combined with the full-bodied texture of Grenache.
Its dense colour can show tints of purple, garnet or ruby. Powerful, delicious and elegant, its red berry bouquet reveals aromas of cherry, blackcurrant and peppery spices in the mouth. They reappear on the palate after the very appealing initial attack. This balanced softness and unctuousness leads up to a silky finish.
