Réserve de Fleur is Delibo’s own Côtes du Rhône. We blend the wine annually with oenologist Denis Deschamps to make a modern style, unoaked wine that reflects its origins in the hot southern Rhône Valley in France. And it has a screwcap, still quite unusual in this region!
Les Vignerons d’Estézargues is a high quality co-operative founded in 1965 in the Gard département 20 kilometres west of Avignon. The wine is made from mostly Syrah with smaller proportions of Grenache, Mourvedre and Carignan. Minimal use of sulphur, unfiltered for texture and flavour.
The vineyards are 420 hectares at 65-150 metres above sea level and the vines are 20-80+ years old.
Réserve de Fleur has a clear, intense, red colour and aromas of black and red currant. The wine is youthful and fresh, with ripe, clean, bright fruit, backed up by the structure of delicate tannins. Flavours of pepper and spice make it perfect with game stews, Mediterranean sausages, pasta or cheese fondue.
