 Wine Information
Rouge-Bleu Premiere Cuvée Lunatique 2014 (#15-35)

The story and the name of this wine come from this tiny rocky block located inside a prehistoric river bed. This parcel is the last harvested and definitely the most qualitative even if located officially in a "Vin de Table" area.   Winemaking took place in small porous concrete tanks in order to respect “terroir” diversity and allow air exchange during the fermentation, eventually permitting life and expressions of aromas.  Lunatique comes from naturally farmed 77 year old Grenache vines.  The wine achieved great balance of acidity, tannins and alcohol.  This natural fine wine is complex and rich with hints of blackberry, anise and kirsch.  

Grapes:  100% Grenache

Region: Rhone Valley Vineyard:  Domaine Rouge-Bleu
