The Ardèche par Nature Cuvée red is a cracker of a wine – the perfect everyday drinker! The vineyard is situated on the southern side of the southern part of Ardèche on the Rhone Valley’s right bank. Par Nature is operated by Vignerons Ardechois, which when it started back in the twelfth century was just a handful of farmers and winemakers. Now the Vignerons Ardechois is run by over 1,500 winemakers who all share the same respect for sustainable farming. The vines are selected and managed to ensure low yields. Special care is taken during the entire growing cycle, especially in terms of limiting chemical treatments. A strict checklist is respected from winemaking through to bottling, thereby guaranteeing this product’s traceability.
Vignerons Ardéchois is more than ever looking towards the future. In 2014 they launched a plan to help young grape growers to take over vineyards, thus encouraging a generation renewal and preparing to face the growing demand on Ardèche Wines.
The Ardèche par Nature Cuvée red is a blend of Merlot and Syrah. This wine is a bright red garnet colour with a bluish glow. Its nose exhales aromas of red berries, liquorice with a mineral touch. It is fruity and fresh on the palate but stands apart from other wines thanks to its expressiveness. It is light with distinct tannins although soft. It will perfectly pair with a goat cheese salad, local ham and grilled meat.
