Product description

Located near Avignon, at the heart of the Rhone Valley, the fortified stronghold of Bonpas, from the French “Bon passage”, has watched over the safe crossing of the Durance River along the historic route that once linked Rome with Avignon. The estate marks the gateway to the southern Côtes-du-Rhône appellations and opens its gates to the discovery of the region’s terroirs. Its sophisticated, elegant wines embody the terroirs and varietals of this famous region through their power and fruitiness. LOCALISATION The vineyards are located between the Uchaux hills and the Plan de Dieu appellation. GRAPE VARIETALS Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan. VINIFICATION AND MATURING The grapes come from selected plots in which they are able to reach full maturity verging on over-ripeness. Tannin extraction is monitored daily in order to obtain a wine with accomplished structure without any aggressiveness. EXAMEN ORGANOLEPTIQUE Visual: Deep red in colour. Nose: Soft floral and a hint of freshly churned butter. Palate: Flavours of black fruit are discernible from the start. Full-bodied tannic structure enhanced by lovely hints of spice and impressive length. FOOD AND WINE PAIRING Serve at 17°C with all types of red and white meats, whether roasted, grilled or stewed. Also pairs well with cheeses.
