Camille Cayran - Les Voconces - Cairanne - Red
Les Voconces from Camille Cayran is a red Cairanne made from 79% Grenache vieilles vignes, 1% Mourvèdre, 5% Carignan and 15% Syrah. The grapes are harvested manually and are mixed together to provide complexity right from the start. The grapes from the selected areas have been grown in garrigue vegetation, which provides structured wines with aromas of mature red berries that develop tones of tapenade and black spices (pepper, cloves ...). The wine production is of traditional mehod with little daily remontage. The fermentation lasts for about 3 weeks to allow the rounding of the tannins, as well as giving the wine concentration and fruitiness. The wine is stored in concrete tanks for 18 months before bottling.
