Marcel Richaud was a pioneer in southern Rhone in using organic practices and minimizing So2 in his wines early 70's in the village of Cairanne.
His wine are always big (classical of the area) but somehow always balanced and still with a great acidity as a backbone. Marcel is very experienced and always blends in different grape varieties to make this wine a delight.
AOP Cairanne 2020 is a blend of 45% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah and 15% of Carignan.
The grapes come from differents terroirs in Cairanne vineyard. The vines are old vines ranging from 40 to 70 years old. The wine is partly aged in oak vessels (foudres) and partly in concrete tanks. We're always amazed by the drinkability of Richaud wines.
A bright ruby color, with notes of bright red fruits and spice. The wine is light yet powerful, with silky and souple tannins.
