Transluscent black-ruby in the glass, Manarine’s Côtes du Rhone conveys vibrant wild cherry fruit accented by notes of lavender, garrigue, bitter orange peel and sappy vines stems. Fleshy and supple on the palate, the wine spotlights its deep, tangy core of big cherry and loganberry fruit.
About Domaine La Manarine:
Domaine La Manarine is located in the town of TRAVAILLAN in Vaucluse, a small village of 676 inhabitants located 35 km north of Avignon, 10 km east of Orange and 20 km west of Vaison la Romaine. The domaine was created by Gilles Gasq in April 2001. The winery and majority of his vineyards are located within the commune of Travaillan, on a splendid plateau northeast of Orange in the southern Rhone. Gilles is a talented vigneron who has honed his skills working as an assistant to Paul Jeune, the proprietor of Domaine Monpertuis in Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
Domaine La Manarine practices organic viticulture. Work in the cellar is minimal with little intervention. Fermentations are left to start with indigenous yeasts, with no fining and only a light filtration is utilized if needed.
