Carignan and Mourvèdre are the heart of this gorgeous full-bodied red, accented with Syrah and Grenache Noir.  Aromas of spice and leather enhance silky tannins that blossom into a lingering, rich aftertaste without being heavy. Cuvée Le Grand Saut 2014 took silver at the 2016 Hérault Valley wine competition. 

This hearty red is a willing and able match for game, duck confit, grilled beef and hard cheeses.

Vineyard Notes
La Voûte du Verdus is situated in the appellation Terrasses du Larzac, north of Montpellier, in the breathtaking village of Saint-Guillem-le-Desert. It’s vineyards are spread over the municipalities of Aniane and Saint-Jean-de-Fos where some of the most famous wines of the Languedoc are made. The vines grow on southeast-facing hills in soils of clay and limestone. Cooling winds from the Black Mountains keep the grapes from ripening too quickly. The longer grapes sit on the vine, the more complex the flavors. Complexity equals delicious! 20 hectares of vineyards are planted with local grapes like Syrah, Grenache Noir, Carignan and Mourvèdre for red wine and Grenache Blanc and Colombard for white. Mourvèdre and a portion of Syrah and Carignan come from the hillsides of Aniane "Brousses.” Grenache and some Carignan grapes are harvested at "Le Saut" in the town of Saint-Jean-de-Fos. Most of the Syrah comes from "Puechauma" in Aniane.
Production Notes
Grapes are hand-harvested in small cartons. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 3 to 4 weeks, depending on the tasting, then aged in French oak barrels for 12 months in a naturally damp and temperate vaulted cellar above the Verdus stream.
Winemaker Notes
La Voûte du Verdus is a family-owned domaine that has been operating for over 100 years in the medieval town of Saint-Guillem-le-Desert, an ancient commune officially designated as one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France. La Voûte du Verdus (“Vault of the Verdus River”) is so named because the cave in which the Bonnet family makes the wine sits atop the Verdus River flowing underneath. This award-winning winery maintains 20 hectares of vines from local grapes such as Syrah, Grenache Noir, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Grenache Blanc and Colombard.
Food Pairing Notes
This hearty red is a willing and able match for game, duck confit, grilled beef and hard cheeses.
