Wine and food pairings
Its inherent Mediterranean style makes this wine the best match for all the aperitifs and barbecues punctuating the summer. Oh la la is ideal with grilled red meats but also with a nice plate of cheeses. Oh la la is also irresistible with italian gastronomy, whether you want to enjoy some parmiggiana or a homemade pizza with vegetables from the garden. In particular we love this wine with pasta al ragù della nonna. Simply, it is a delicious wine which will seduce all the foodlovers loving good and local products, in particular mediterranean cuisine.

The Winemaker’s corner
Soil: fluvial deposits dating back to the Pliocene. Angular stones and siliceous pebbles from the Montagne Noire.
Vines are taken care of plot by plot, grape by grape, in a manner to balance the old syrahs with the younger vines of Merlot, Marselan and Cabernet Franc.
Grapes of the four varieties are harvested separately depending on their ripeness and tastes, then destemmed and remained to ferment. A daily pumping over at controlled temperature allows to obtain a gentle and quality extraction. Furthermore an everyday tasting allows to define the end of the post maceration. Finally blending happens post fermentation, around december.
Keep: 2 – 3 years
