Miss Quiot Musclée

Miss Quiot in Red... a tenderly muscular body.

Story

The wine
An air of Gigondas or Châteauneuf-du-Pape ? It is not, but our vineyards 3rd leaves are in this bottle.
Location
We have two small plots in IGP. Also, the grapes come from our Gigondas and Châteauneuf-du-Pape domaines. Indeed, before entering production for these famous vintages at the age of 4, the 2-year-old vines produce young grapes : that is what is called the 3rd leaves. These grapes are blended with those from our classified plots as IGP.
Terroir
Our IGP plots are located in the old bed of the Rhône, near the Tour de Lhers. The very calcareous soils are composed of alluvium.
In the vineyard
All of our domaines are identically cultivated, plots in Cru or IGP, according to the specifications.
Vinification
Nothing better than tradition !
Destemming, light crushing and vatting. Maceration from 8 to 10 days, at a very controlled temperature in order to preserve the fruit.

A little ageing in concrete vats, 8 to 10 months, before bottling.
