"Création Grosset" expresses the authentic character of the Grenache grapes that thrive in the dry, warm Mediterranean climate of the Cairanne appellation. This fine yet powerful red Rhône is generous and ample, with introductory notes of wild fruits and prunes followed by toasted hints marrying harmoniously with the fine tannins.
Located in the village of Cairanne, Domaine Grosset belonged to Alain Grosset, Laurent Brotte’s father-in-law. The Grosset family has always been very active in the life of the village, especially in the development of the Cairanne AOC. Domaine Grosset, just below the old town, covers 20ha boasting Grenache vines up to 100 years of age. The vineyard consists of two different types of soil: grey marls with sand, for freshness and structure, and terraces of sandy clay and stones, for aromatic intensity. The warm, dry Mediterranean climate is perfect for the maturity of the Grenache.
Color: Intense ruby color with garnet glints.
Nose: Very elegant with complex aromas of red berries, warm spices and dry forest floor.
Palate: Mouth warming and unctuous, the palate follows the nose with hints of cinnamon and red peppercorns married with ripe wild berries and prunes. The tannins are elegant giving way to a long toasted finish.
