No Sex for Butterfly Rouge 2018 - Pays d'Oc
This pure Grenache noir, aged in cement vats, is a real nectar of fruit. It is characterized by freshness, notes of black fruits, supple tannins and a nice roundness in the mouth. A quaffable red that can be enjoyed chilled.
Managed by Dominique Ricome, the family property of Château de Valcombe spreads over 73 hectares. They are divided into Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault, Mourvèdre for the reds and Roussanne, Grenache blanc and Viognier for the whites.
The No sex for Butterfly range was born because Dominique does not use chemicals but natural pheromone diffusers that disturb the butterflies, preventing their mating and thus the birth of Eudemis, a caterpillar that wreaks havoc in the vineyards.
