50% Cinsault, 50% Syrah

Terroir: Located on the clay and limestone plain next to the estate's pond, this
terroir has plenty of sunshine, natural soil humidity and an ideal summer
temperature for the creation of light, fruity and naturally well-balanced wines.

In the vineyard: All our vines have been worked without weedkillers or
pesticides since 2013 and our vineyard is certified organic since the 2019 harvest.
This cuvée comes from young vines planted in 2015. They are grown at a density
of 5,000 vines/hectare, pruned in simple Guyot, with high trellising. The harvest
is carried out manually, in crates.

Vinification: In the cellar, the harvest is pressed after a short skin maceration in a
pneumatic press. This maceration gives the juice a beautiful pale pink colour.
These juices are then put into stainless steel vats for a 3-day maceration of the
bourbes, where fermentation will be carried out by the indigenous yeasts that are
present on the grapes. The wine is aged on lees and beaten for a few months to
allow it to mature gently. This wine has not undergone malolactic fermentation.

Tasting notes: On the first nose, this cuvée is fruity and sweet, with notes of citrus
fruits and fresh red berries. Then light notes of sweet spices appear. You will also
find these flavors on the palate.

Food & wine pairing: This wine will perfectly match your spring and summer
dishes, for example grilled meats and Mediterranean cuisine, as it will bring a
delicacy and freshness to your dishes.

Serving tip: Take the bottle out of the fridge when serving.



Arlene and Norge are the proud owners of Château Bois d’Arlène. They share their lives between Vacqueyras and Seattle, traveling from one continent to the other as regularly as possible. In Seattle, Arlene has had a distinguished career in a children’s hospital, and Norge is a physicist, oceanographer, and entrepreneur. Twenty years ago, they came for the first time to the Vaucluse, and fell in love with it. They met the Bernard family, who, with great generosity, introduced them to this unique terroir that produces high quality wines. After many holidays spent in Vacqueyras, they felt the desire to spend more time in the region, to feel finally a little more at home.

Philippe is the manager and the cellar master at Château Bois d’Arlène. After his wine studies, followed by rich and diverse professional experiences around the world, it seemed natural to him to come back to his homeland and join the family business in 2000. In 2008, together with his wife Elizabeth, they started the adventure of opening their own winery. They are now the happy owners of the Domaine La Ligière, in Beaumes-de-Venise, and are cultivating organically about sixty hectares of vines in AOC Vacqueyras, Beaumes-de-Venise, Gigondas and Côtes-du-Rhône. When they discovered the Château Bois d’Arlène, they immediately fell in love with its unique terroir and landscape and were seduced by the idea of ​​producing some beautiful wines on it.
