THE GRAPES

THE REDS
The predominant grape variety of Crisitia is the Grenache which accounts for nearly 85% of all the appellations. This very vigorous and fertile cépage has an excellent resistance to wind and dry weather, very suited to the Provencal climate and gives an aromatic bouquet of black fruit, kirsch, cassis and game.
Syrah, which accounts for around 10%, is a grape which has a good resistance to oxidation. It is deeply coloured with a fine structure of tannin and possesses aromatic notes of raspberry, cassis, violet and peppers.
The Mourvèdre accounts for around 5%. This variety also has a tannic structure and intense aromas of pepper, game, truffle and garrigue and completes the blend.


THE WHITES
The noble blend of Grenache blanc for the power, the Clairette for the fruit, the Roussane for the body and the Bourboulenc for the freshness makes the white Châteauneuf-du-Pape, finely balanced and seductive.
