L'affranchi de Saint Jean d'Aumières

AOP Languedoc

Appellation d’Origine Protégée (AOP)
Rouge
40% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 20% Carignan

Terroir

Château St-Jean d’Aumières’ vineyard lies on the slopes overlooking the high-valley of Hérault gorges, upon the foothills of the Larzac area. That is where Syrah, Grenache and Carignan varieties reach perfect ripening to offer this smart, sleek vintage.

Vinification

The wine is put into vats and maintained at between 25 and 30°C. The extraction, performed via “remontage” (pumping over) and “delestage” (rack and return), is a gentle process that provides the wine with only the silkiest tannins. The wine matures in barrels so much so that it acquires its specific full body.

Assemblage

40% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 20% Carignan

Tasting notes

Syrah, Grenache, and Carignan varieties offer a harmonious combination, which endows this wine with a delicate nose, offering ripe fruit and a toasted fragrance perception. After a plain attack, one can enjoy a dense yet smooth taste.

Service

It should be served at a 15-18°C temperature.

Serving Suggestions

Enjoy L’Affranchi with red or white meat, either grilled or cooked in sauce.
