Camille Cayran - La Réserve - Cairanne - Red
La Reserve from Camille Cayran is made from 45% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Vieux Carignan and 15% Mourvèdre. The grapes are picked by hand and then cleared from the bunches directly on the field. The wine is produced to 90% according to the traditional method with grapes separated from their bunches. 10% is produced after carbonic maceration in order to extract the most possible quantity of fruit aromas. The fermentation then takes place for 15-25 days with a stirring per day (remontage). The final wine is put together at the end of the winter and is then stored in concrete tanks for 8 months before being bottled.
