Situated in Sainte-Cécile-Les-Vignes, Domaine Rouge-Bleu follows biodynamic principles on all of its 8.5ha, of which half rest in the Côtes du Rhône Villages appellation.
Our low yields are the natural outcome of old, deep-rooted vines that sit on a stony soil of ancient riverbed and garrigue. Coupled with the Mediterranean climate of long, hot, dry summers and the rot-inhibiting Mistral wind, our vineyard is the perfect environment for berry maturation, giving a pure expression of terroir.
Hand-harvested early in the season to retain the natural acidity of the fruit, our grapes are picked at sunrise to retain freshness and brought to the cellar in small containers for direct pressing. Wild yeast fermentation takes place in small tanks that, along with temperature control, retain the freshness of primary aromas and flavours. Brief maturation in tank before being bottled with light filtration
at the Domaine in the January following the Harvest. Minimal sulphite addition.
Screwcap has been chosen to retain the freshness and primary aromas of this wine.
