From the Tank, Côtes du Rhône Vin Rouge Les Vignerons d'Estezargues 3L
Age of Vines: 20 to 80 years
Soil: Red clay based & stone strewn
Varieties: 40% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 15% Carignan
Vinification Method: Hand harvested. No external yeast & no enzymes are employed during the winemaking process. The bunches are destemmed and the fruit undergoes fifteen days of maceration. The wine is stored in enamel-lined tanks, and are bagged and boxed on demand.
Tasting Note: Garnet in the glass with shimmering highlights. Elegant notes of smoky red fruit, violet, sweet herb and a note of baking chocolate. The palate is rich with ripe cherry and berry flavors, and a mineral note that is followed by supple acidity and velvety tannins. This is a very expressive red with a great concentration of fruit that is yet never overly extracted. The wine finishes with floral notes & a dash of black pepper.
Pairing: Works wonders with grilled chicken & pork, cold cuts, or simply by itself.
From the Tank® was born out of the collaboration between François Ecot of Jenny & François Selections and Denis Deschamps of Les Vignerons D’ Estézargues fame. They decided on a blend for the three-liter bag-in-box that would be the exact same quality as what Jenny & François bring to the US in bottles. Each year, the From the Tank® wine fountain is a special blend made just for Jenny & François Selections.
Great for serving by the glass, for parties, picnics, or for people who only want a glass of wine a day. The conservations will last much longer than bottles once they are opened and it is light to carry. The box also has a much smaller carbon footprint than regular wine bottles because of its weight, making it lighter to ship.
