Type: Red Wine
Terres d'Aigles comes from Marcel Richaud's younger vines of Grenache and Carignan along the Aigues river in Cairanne. Each of the varieties is vinified separately in cement, before blending and aging in old oak casks. Marcel never fines or filters, and only a very small amount of sulfur was added at bottling.
The nose is vibrant and open, with notes of cherry liqueur, cassis, wet stone, and violet. The palate is structured but refined, with notes of blackberry and raspberry around a savory core of earthiness and stone. There's plenty of refreshing acidity, with nice smooth tannins that frame the palate.
