The Côtes du Roussillon Villages TAUTAVEL “Cistes”

This cuvee owes its name to the small bush “Cistes” with little white flowers growing at the wild state in the scrub surrounding the plots used to produce this wine. Its soil, facing South-East, is the earliest on the Domaine. It brings a candied and grilled side to this cuvee.

The “Cistes” will be a perfect match for games, red and sauced meat dishes.

Keeping : 7 to 8 years
Tasting temperature: 15° C to 19° C
