Domaine La Croix Gratiot 'Rouge Cerise' IGP Pays d’Hérault
The Rouse Cerise is made 100% from Syrah. The vines are planted on soils of loam and limestone, situated near the village of Montagnac which is near to the Mediterranean Sea. The proximity of the zone to the sea means cool maritime breezes moderate the climate, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and retain good levels of acidity, resulting in fresh and vibrant wines.
The `Rouge Cerise` boasts notes of ripe cherry fruit and hints of black pepper on the nose. On the palate, the tannins are smooth and well-balanced with bright acidity. Subtle notes of smoke and sweet spice carry through to the elegant finish, nice ripe tannins.
