The Vox Rouge is expressive with ripe raspberry and blackberry fruit. On the palate, the wine is well balanced with supple tannins and fresh, lifted acidity. The flavours are concentrated and layered with notes of spice and liquorice which linger on the finish.
Grape varieties: 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 10% Marselan, 5% other.
Alc. 15% vol. Vegan.
The grapes were hand harvested and subjected to a rigorous sorting process upon arrival at the winery. The grapes were all de-stemmed and macerated on the skins for 18 days in order to extract colour and tannin. Fermentation took place in concrete vats. At the beginning of the fermentation, the ‘rack and return’ process was employed in order to encourage extraction, followed by gentle pumping over to avoid extraction of overly-harsh tannins. After malolactic fermentation, the wine rested in concrete tanks for 12 months before bottling.
Located in the foothills of Mount Ventoux, the vineyards surrounding the Abbey include the first papal vineyard in France which pre-dates Châteaneuf-du-Pape. The vines are planted at an altitude of 320-380 metres in the foothills and are tempered by the Mistral wind. The vines benefit from warm days and cool nights and are cultivated organically. The location means work in the vineyards is very labour intensive, so everything is done by hand.
To be enjoyed with grilled meats or a platter of cold cuts, and complements a wide range of Mediterranean dishes.
We found it paired very well with a starter of charcuterie followed by heart-warming ratatouille.
Quietly pursuing an authentic Benedictine life of work and prayer, the monks of The Abbey of Sainte-Madeleine du Barroux have flourished since the establishment and construction of their monastery. Whilst young men from around France come here to dedicate themselves to the spiritual life, lifting their voices in praise according to ancient Latin chants seven times daily, they also pour their energy into producing wines to the highest standards, and use the knowledge they gain through the study of the land and vines to benefit the small winegrowers in the community around them.
