Coquille D’Oc Red 2014

Coquille D’Oc Red 2014


Le Coquille D’Oc Red Wine is Syrah-dominant Languedoc blend. It is deep, ruby red in colour and has a raspberry jam, chocolate and rich mocha nose. On the palate the wine has more obvious blackberry fruit, spice and pepper. It has round tannins and a generous finish.

The scallop shell was a very appropriate image to use for wine from Sainte Rose for two historical reasons. Firstly this shell was a waymarker for Medieval travellers on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. There is one such shell embossed on a stone basin in front of our house as this site was once a hostellerie offering shelter to pilgrims travelling west. Secondly we have found actual scallop shells in one of our vineyards that date back to Roman times as there was a Roman settlement on the outskirts of what is now our local village.
