La Griveliere Côtes du Rhône AOC

La Grivelière is a blend of native grapes cultivated in south-central France along the Rhône River. Well-balanced with aromas of red fruits and spices with mild hints of vanilla and earth. Rich, full-bodied and round in the mouth. The finish is long with mild tannins. Each varietal is fermented separately in concrete tanks, then aged in a combination of concrete and oak for 6 months, followed by 18 months in bottle.

Blueberries, plums and distinct earth make up the aromas for this classic French wine. In the mouth it leads with more fruit, complemented by rich baking spice and velvety tannins. Earthy tea leaves make for an herbal flecked finish.
