    Cuvée presentation

    Elodie Balme starts from the principle that to have good wine, the vines and the grapes must be looked after. This Côtes du Rhône is made from Grenache, Carignan and Syrah and they come from terroirs of pebbly sandstone in the commune of Buisson. No exogenous yeast is used. Barrel fermentation lasts 12 days with daily pumping-over. The wine is then aged in a concrete vat and is lightly filtered before bottling. Elodie Balme has created a mouth-watering Côtes du Rhône with persistent notes of ripe and floral fruit. A very pleasant cuvée to enjoy with a plate of homemade spaghetti carbonara.
