DOMAINE LA FLORANE À FLEUR DE PAMPRE ROSÉ 2016

0.00

Côtes du Rhône Villages Visan. Cinsault, Carignan and Grenache

Grown and made as a rosé from the get go (not a concentrator for reds), this is tight, zippy and Provençal in feel, weight and colour, but differs in fruit and mineral profiles.  Maintains the estate’s hallmark of freshness, with citrus and watermelon fruit and sharp definition from its inland origins.  Humming acidity.  Taut and tense, a markedly different expression of the Southern Rhône to the broader Tavel style.

Domain La Florane

Organic Côtes du Rhône Villages from the rarely seen terroir of Visan

Domaine La Florane is an exciting find which further broadens the options of excellent Southern Rhône wines available in Australia.  The 35 hectare property is situated on a south-facing slope at the highest point of the Visan appellation (elevation is 195 – 320 metres), viticulture is certified organic (biodynamic practice) and the winery has been purpose built to maximize use of gravity, with wines matured in wood and concrete.  A key philosophy is that no stylistic blending is practiced at the estate the same blocks make up the same cuvées each year, showcasing the season.

Few Visan wines are seen in Australia.  The hilly village is located around 10km north of Cairanne, with vines grown in clay-limestone soils.  Domaine La Florane’s terroir is gravelly and scattered with large round pebbles; its aspect and high limestone content coupled with the steady mistral wind raises wines of freshness and invigorating natural acidity. Visan was granted Côtes du Rhône Villages appellation status in 1966.
