Producer Note

Nestled in the foothills of the Mont Ventoux, on the Princes of Orange route, is the Domaine de Champ-Long. The sheltered and exceptionally sunny estate covers 30 hectares, straddling

the Ventoux and Côtes du Rhône appellations. An exceptional diversity of terroirs contributes to the complexity of these fine wines, which are vinified using methods that fuse traditional

skills with modern technology. Owners Béatrice, Christian and Jean-Christophe Gely, cultivate their passion for wine in this beautiful countryside, on the estate which has belonged to the

family since 1820.   

Vintage

2016 was a wonderful vintage in the Rhône, with a dry and sunny ripening period. The harvest produced grapes of high quality and a good quantity yield. The resulting wines are full

bodied with excellent ripe fruit characters.

Vineyard

The grapes come from two different terroirs: the pebbly and sandy plateaus and the limestone marl slopes. Each terroir imparts its own characteristic to the resulting wine and adds to

its subtle complexity. Aged between 10 and 30 years old, the vines yield 45 hectolitres per hectare.

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested by hand, destemmed, lightly crushed and cold soaked for 48 hours. Fermentation took place in concrete vats at 20°C, with racking and daily pumping over.

The fermentation was kept short, five to six days, in order to obtain a fruity wine with low tannins. The wine was then aged for one year in concrete vats to maintain its fresh and fruity

style.

Tasting Note

Bright and fruity with aromas of ripe red fruits and damsons enhanced by a meaty texture through to a spicy and rounded finish.

Serving Suggestion

A versatile wine, which pairs well with roast chicken, grilled marinated meats, pasta dishes and stuffed vegetables.
