A cuvée in a class of its own: a very well crafted, fruity and lightly spiced 100% Cinsault with a superbly delicate, silky texture. Pair with red meats and duck. More info

The Pradel is a pure Cinsault, which makes it rare enough to mention, especially since it is a very fine cuvée. It is aged for 12 months in barriques. The nose, complex and subtle, delivers beautiful aromas of small red berries (raspberry, cherry), floral notes (rose, iris), as well as light notes of spices and liquorice. On the palate, we discover great delicacy and considerable sweetness, a silky and ethereal texture, with well-melted tannins; its length is noteworthy. This remarkable wine goes perfectly with red meat and duck.

IGP Pays d'Hérault Le Pradel Terrasse d'Elise (Domaine de la) serve at a temperature of 15°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Steak tartare, Parmentier de sanglier, Lapin à la tomate et au basilic.

Information about domain Terrasse d'Elise

Xavier Braujou has been running the family-owned Terrasse d'Elise domain since 1998. Keeping quality as his constant watchword, he has chosen to reduce yields dramatically (to around 20 hl/ha) and to work with old grape varieties. In particular, he has opted for certain cuvées to work with single varieties, showcasing his Cinsault, Carignan and Mourvèdre grapes – too often considered only as grapes for blending. Although not certified, the vineyard is run according to organic and biodynamic principles.
