 Wine Information
Masquin CdR Humeur Rouge 2014 (#27-17)
$14.00

With 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, production is around 30hl/ha (very small for CdR, the average production being about 45hl/hectare). Only old vines (around 60 years old) and Grenache are planted on a stony soil that is the same as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, while Syrah are planted on a sandy soil for more softness and fruit. After alcoholic fermentation the wine is aged for 4-6 months  in a  big barrel (foudre) of French oak. 

Grapes: Grenache (60%), Syrah (40%)

Region: Rhone Valley Vineyard:  Domaine Julien Masquin
