The palate follows its nose with more tobacco, bark, and iron like notes. It is medium in body, with fresh acidity and rich concentration. .

WINE INFORMATION

The Cotes du Rhone Villages Laudun appellation, dating back to 1947, is in the heart of this winemaking region, on the right bank of the powerful Rhone River. These quality wines were already produced in Roman times, near Caesar's Camp, and the nearby plains were dotted with large agricultural domains. They were exported in Gaul via roads, rivers, and sea traffic. Over the centuries, the wine became one of the favorites of the French Kings, including Henry IV.

Since the 16th century, the Pélaquié family has cultivated vineyards and produced wine in the same place. Continuing the family tradition, Luc Pélaquié creates each year wines that are subtle and full-flavored.

Grapes are hand-harvested from sandy clay slopes with a northern exposure. Traditional fermentation lasts 12 to 14 days. The wine is aged for 15-18 months after harvest.
