Les Silex de Chateau Cabrieres Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge
Chateau Cabrieres
France - Rhone Valley - Chateauneuf du Pape AOC   

The vineyard is situated on the high tablelands, which are characteristic of the northern area of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The terrain consists mainly of alpine diluvium and chalky Miocenian soil, with large flint pebbles covering the surface. These pebbles conserve the heat of the day during the night, thus avoiding too much evaporation.

Elegant cherry red color, with expressive notes of red fruits (strawberry and raspberry). Mellow tannins, well-balanced in the palate, with a freshness and a fruity taste.
