Le Vieux Pin, Petit Rouge 2016
Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah
The inspiration for Petit Rouge is to make a wine that adheres to the same exacting standards and level of care as the rest of the wines at Le Vieux Pin, yet at the same time be more accessible upon release. Made from the fruit of younger vines and vines pruned and cropped at less stringent levels, Petit Rouge offers a big bang for your buck. This year's blend consists mostly of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Syrah albeit in a smaller percentage as part of the blend still makes its presence known on both the nose and the palate with red bramble fruit, delicate peppercorn notes, and floral aroma. The palate is lively and harmonious with a great balance of fruit, tannin, and acid. Petit Rouge is quite versatile and very food friendly.
Aged for 13 months in neutral French oak barrels
