THE VISUAL
  • ITS ORIGIN

    The roots of the Defrance family, historical cornerstone of this group of winegrowers, are found in the Ardèche region, on steep slopes that lie upon a deep soil of eroded gneiss along with sedimentary deposit known as loess. For Clairmont, it was such an evident choice to welcome among its range of wines this right bank appellation which has such an exceptional micro-climate open to the South and protected from Northerly and Westerly winds.

    WINEMAKING

    The grapes are systematically de-stemmed. For a gentle extraction of tannins and colour, the maceration phase stretches out from 25 to 30 days, with several daily sessions of pumping-over or punching-the-cap. Maturation in French oak barrels lasts for 12 months.

    ITS CHARACTER

    Paré d’une robe intense de couleur pourpre, ce vin riche et gourmand exhale des arômes de fruits noirs, accompagnés de notes légèrement épicées (vanille bourbon). La bouche, soutenue par des tanins délicats, se dévoile d’abord fraîche et fruitée, avec des arômes de fruits noirs et de vanille.

    PAIRING WITH FOOD

    This is an ideal wine for festive moments. The structure it maintains in accompaniment to food will be a perfect match with a barbecue or with braised red meat. At a buffet dinner and drinks, the delicious flavours of this wine will be delightful to accompany pork pie. Its delicacy will lighten the strong flavours of a coq au vin simmered for many hours.

    ITS CHARACTER

    Presenting a vivid purple hue, this rich, delicious wine expresses aromas of ripe black fruit, such as blackcurrant, along with some slightly peppery hints. Buoyed on the palate by a structure of supple, delicate tannins, it first reveals itself fresh and mineral and then develops towards flavours of blackcurrant and spices, such as pepper.
