Château les valentines

2015

The diversity of grapes used in winemaking and the strength of the terroir produce complex, full-bodied reds associated with an aromatic palate dominated by spices. Château Les Valentines Rouge possesses a fresh, crisp nose with aromatic notes of violet, liquorice and creme de cassis. On the palate, toasted flavours add complexity to a wine dominated by dried herbs, rosemary, the garrigue and ripe fruit. Tannic overtones delivered along with lovely minerality. This red is emblematic of the Provence wine region and can be enjoyed young and rich or set aside to mature for six or seven years.
