Virant Red Estate
Domaine Virant Rouge is an easy drinking wine. Like all our wines, it is made exclusively from the vines of the domain. Sébastien, our cellar master, pays particular attention to the follow-up of its production because it reflects the spirit of the Cheylan family: to make accessible to the greatest number of quality products, coming from the French Terroir and recognized for their authenticity.
Its roundness and suppleness are due to a cold pre-fermentation maceration and a short vinification perfectly controlled.
Its identification as a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) Mediterranean allows a great diversity in the choice of grape varieties that make up our Domaine Virant Rouge. Thus, we wanted an original assembly which confers to this wine beautiful notes of red fruits, currants and blackcurrants.

Correct mais sans personnalité
Comment from Chateau Virant the 20/04/2022
Bonjour Monsieur, il s'agit en effet de notre gamme de vin apéritif. Nous avons voulu des vins fruités et peu complexes pour convenir aux dégustations des amateurs, le plus souvent autour d'un barbecue, d'un apéritif ou d'une pizza. Merci encore une fois de votre sincérité dans l'évaluation de nos produits et des commentaires élogieux que vous avez formulés pour notre Chardonnay et notre huile d'olive Aglandau.

Oui c'est cela. La pizza peut s'arranger avec ce vin.

Je ne peux pas noter ce vin car je ne le boirai pas A mon avis, donner un degré alcoolique de 14.5° à un petit vin de tous les jours est une HERESIE
