            [Notes2] => Located in the commune of Canet-en-Roussillon, close to the Pyrenees, this 60 hectare estate is blessed by a wonderful natural environment. Sitting on a hill, the vineyard soil has a clay/limestone soil with a scattering of quartz stones. The land, swept by winds from the Mediterranean to the east and by the Tramontane arriving from Spain, combined with abundant sunshine, is perfect for producing varieties such as Carignan, Grenache and Syrah.
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => Syrah/Grenache/Carignan.  Plenty of ripe fruit and a touch of oak with a lovely elegance and lightness.
            [MediaNotes] => Silver medal MACON 2021	

            [ServingSuggestion] => guinea fowl supreme on skewers, chickpea purée with lemon and spices, Munster.			
			

            [WineMakingNotes] => On the shores of the Mediterranean rises an island with flamboyant vegetation.
Born from a fragmentation of the Pyrenees, this sandy and pebbled setting hosts
a 62-hectare vineyard. It is here that Château L`Esparrou presides. This castle,
built by the famous Danish architect Petersen, was the residence of many artists
such as Dufy and Cocteau.
TERROIR
This terroir, already distinguished in 1813 by the renowned "Guide du Voyageur
en France", recognized it as one of the great wines of Roussillon.
Its thick rolled pebble floor stores heat and releases it after dark. The breath of
the Tramontane cleanses the vines. Rich, complex and voluminous, the wines of
Esparrou remain faithful to this exceptional terroir.
VINIFICATION
Blend: Carignan, Grenache, Syrah. Manually harvested and whole bunch
vinification for the Carignan, destemming for the Grenache and the Syrah.
Cold prefermenation maceration. Aged in oak barrels.

Winemaking >

On the shores of the Mediterranean rises an island with flamboyant vegetation. Born from a fragmentation of the Pyrenees, this sandy and pebbled setting hosts a 62-hectare vineyard. It is here that Château L`Esparrou presides. This castle, built by the famous Danish architect Petersen, was the residence of many artists such as Dufy and Cocteau. TERROIR This terroir, already distinguished in 1813 by the renowned "Guide du Voyageur en France", recognized it as one of the great wines of Roussillon. Its thick rolled pebble floor stores heat and releases it after dark. The breath of the Tramontane cleanses the vines. Rich, complex and voluminous, the wines of Esparrou remain faithful to this exceptional terroir. VINIFICATION Blend: Carignan, Grenache, Syrah. Manually harvested and whole bunch vinification for the Carignan, destemming for the Grenache and the Syrah. Cold prefermenation maceration. Aged in oak barrels.
