Lavau

Château Maucoil Côtes du Rhône Villages

Rhône :: France

https://www.lavau.fr/en/

Estate::

Its proximity to the Châteauneuf du Pape vineyards and the similarity of its soil (a mixture of sand and pebbles), as well as the old vines from which it hails, gives this Côtes du Rhône Villages great concentration and loads of character.

Grape varieties::

Grenache (50%) Syrah (25%) Carignan (25%)

Vinification::

Harvesting is carried out by hand and the grapes are transported in 15kg perforated crates. The grapes are sorted berry by berry before going into vat.
By grape variety and by parcel. After a fermentation period of around 25 days with pumping over, rack-and return, and punching down operations, the wines are drawn off and then aged in vats until bottling.
