Tasting notes :
In red wines, Grenache, the predominant grape variety, provides fruitiness, warmth and roundness. Syrah and Mourvèdre give the wine spicy aromas, a color and a sustained structure suitable for aging. Cinsault brings finesse.

an intense ruby color,

strawberries, currants and cranberries aromas,

a supple attack, balanced palate. A tender and delicious wine.

Food and wine pairings :
Charcuterie or at a Picnic.

The wine :
Since 2006, the Quiot Family, charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail and its products of character, owns the Château du Trignon in order to perpetuate it, while expanding it by 10 ha of Vacqueyras and few hectares of Beaume-de-Venise.

"Respectful of achievement but rich of our wine-maker knowledge, we have adopted this land whose singularity fits in with all our others properties, in the same line of tradition, quality and adaptation."

Location :
The Rhône Valley has always been a privileged passage between the Mediterranean world and northern or Atlantic Europe. The very fruitful archaeological research carried out in the region, combined with historical studies, establish the Côtes du Rhône as one of the first wine regions in the world. From 125 BC, the Romans planted vines and built low walls protecting the terraces. They make this region one of the most beautiful in Narbonne Gaul. This notoriety will increase over the centuries and will take shape in 1937 with the consecration of the AOC Côtes du Rhône.

Terroir :
2 terroirs :

- the alluvial terraces rich in pebbles (on the Plan de Dieu) provide the vines with a regular water supply and the return, during the night, of the heat stored during the day by the pebbles.

- the clay-limestone alluvial terraces offer a more contrasting water supply.

Vinification :
3-day maceration prior to fermentation. Vatting time: 8 to 12 days.

GRAPES VARIETIES :
4 grapes varieties : Grenache noir - Syrah - Mourvèdre - Cinsault

REVIEWS

VINTAGE 2018 / MILLÉSIME 2018 - GOLD MEDAL / MÉDAILLE D'OR

VINTAGE 2017 - 88 POINTS - Aromas of crushed roses and red berries lead to a palate that has a very light, lithe and juicy, red-fruit core. Drink now.

VINTAGE : 2016 Au nez cette cuvée dévoile des arômes soutenus de fruits rouges relevés d'épices. En bouche, elle propose ce même fruité intense et déploie une matière ronde et dense, étayée par des tanins fermes.

Vintage 2015 - A blend of three grapes (Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah), this stunning red wine jumped out when tasted side by side with many higher priced 2015 Rhones. Dark and intense in color, this wine has a bright, clean finish that's very fruit forward and smooth from start to finish. Great now, this wine will likely get even better between now and 2023
