Description

Viticulture

Yield 25 hectolitres / hectare Planting density 3600 plants / per hectare

Vinification

In temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Cold soak pre-fermentation, then yeast strains are added to start the alcoholic fermentation. The cuvaison will last for 21 to 28 days under controlled temperature.

Vintage details

A blend of 37% Syrah with 25% Grenache, 23% Cinsault and 15% Mourvèdre. The unoaked Garennes Rouge is deep black-red in colour, with rich, vibrant fruit aromas of plum, blackcurrant and blackberry, combined with a clean, savoury intrigue. The palate is concentrated, deep and vivid, with great purity of fruit and Capion’s hallmark lively acidity: a fresh, pristine, juicy yet complex red from fastidiously sorted fruit, beautifully packaged and offering terrific value for money. Drinking Window 2018 - 2023 Andrew Jefford

Tasting notes

les Chemins des Garennes is Capion's solid second wine. It's rich, velvety and ripe, medium to full-bodied on the palate and loaded with cherry-berry fruit. With its plush texture, it's easy to drink young. Joe Czerwinski
