Magnum Cuvee AOC Red
For your gifts or your big tables, we have packaged a flagship vintage of the domain in Magnum 1,5 L.
The Magnum of Cuvée AOP Rouge Château Virant is our first wine of Protected Designation of Origin packaged in magnum. Slightly less powerful than the very famous Cuvée Inspiration, this wine dominates the great tables by its ease and its fruity aromas. Our sales consultants at the domain recommend it all year long to those who are looking for an original product and a sure value, in search of an easy pleasure.
You will find in this magnum the grape varieties Cabernet, Syrah, Grenache and Carignan. They are exalted by a vinification between 20 and 25°C with long macerations of about four weeks.
Terroir, grape varieties and vinification method make this wine both powerful and supple, with a dominance of black fruits, plums and spices. Its tannins are present and ensure a nice length in mouth.
