This exclusive Grenache Syrah blend is characterized by a beautiful silky delicacy, typical of schist soils and also by its deep, brilliant garnet red colour. This wine shows a complexity typical of its magnificent terroir: nose of rock rose and spices, fat and fleshy palate. Very suitable to age 2 to 5 years, this wine will be perfect throughout a meal, with grilled or stewed meat, poultry and game, and of course cheese.

More information:

A staunch defender of the Languedoc denominations, the parents, Michel Gleizes and his wife Aline, have long invested themselves in the running of their village cooperative winery. Encouraged by their love of wine, they set up their independent winery, Domaine la croix St Eulalie, with the creation of a functional vinification cellar adjoining their home. This spotless facility enables them to vinify small cuvees of separate grape varieties. Today, Michel Gleizes passes the torch to his daughter Agnès and his son-in-law Philippe who follow his steps in developing the estate.

Between sea and mountain, clinging to the last foothills of the Cevennes, at the bottom of Col de Fontjun, Domaine La Croix d’Aline, an exclusive cuvee of Domaine Auruiol, is nestled in the Cirque de Saint-Chinian. This is where olive trees, mimosas, wild strawberry trees and vines gently thrive in a microclimate created by a limestone rock barrier which stops the cold northern winds.

From this 47 ha vineyard, 7 ha are selected for Domaine La Croix d’Aline. The vines are Cordon de Royat pruned. The yield is limited to 33 hl/ha.

The syrah is hand-picked, destemmed and vinified with a long 21 day maceration with regular cap-punching. The harvest is also manual for the Grenache, with a light destemming when it arrives at the winery. The fermentation is shorter: 18 days. The wine is matured in tanks. The blends are carried out in spring by tasting the different vats of varieties.
