The Cairanne appellation recognized and dissociated from Côtes du Rhône villages since 2009, the AOC Cairanne is typical of the wines of the Southern Rhone Valley : Round, rich and spicy. Its vineyard extends over 760 hectares, Near the village of Cairanne towards the plain of “Plan de dieu” and that of the river Aigue. Thus, among the 17 "communal" appellations of the Côtes du Rhône Villages , the vineyard is by far the most important in terms of surface area. The terroir of the Cairanne wines consists of clay-limestone red soils resting on sandstones and sandy marls, as well as a stony and sandy area. This type of soil is perfectly suited to the development of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes, for the production of red and pink wines, as well as the Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Roussane, Marsanne and Viognier grape varieties for making white wines. The specifications of the Cairanne appellation imply a maximum yield of 40 hectoliters per hectare, which is close to most of the Grand Crus produced in France. The climate of the Cairanne appellation is of the classic Mediterranean type with the influence of the mistral (dry and hot wind) and the hot summers, dotted with violent storms. Vine produces grapes with full-bodied flavors, tannic skins, which make it possible to produce wines that are robust, spicy and specially pruned for keeping. Pink wines are opulent, colorful, perfect for southern meals, of course, but also with exotic cooking. Unlike pink wine of Provence, they are suitable for an average age of 3 to 5 years. They then take a slightly orange color, and develop notes of cooked fruits and citrus zests. As for white wines, ideally served at 10 °, they are fat and round, with a floral and mineral side well present.
