Is an old district of Paris where the main food market supplying the city with food products and wines, use to be located. Produces were delivered by horse or ox carts or by barges on the Canal St-Martin (represented on our label). La Villette was a very animated area where authentic Parisians use to get together in some famous restaurants and bistros reputed for their fresh food and good wines.
Color: Very deep purple colour
Nose: Intense blackcurrant and red fruit aromas with hints of flowers and Mediterranean spices.
Palate: In the mouth, it is a rich, bold and fruity wine with dark fruit and liquorice flavors enhanced by satin-smooth tannins.
The three grape varieties are vinified traditionally with a long maceration with both French and American oak. Just a small part of the Mourvèdre is fermented with whole bunch maceration in order to get extra fruit flavors. The wines are aged separately for about 6 months. Then the final blend is decided by our winemaker in order to obtain the most balanced, rich and fruity wine which gently ends its maturation with a light oak addition for another few months.
