Crémant de Die ”Equinoxe”
Monge Granon – Vercheny
ORGANIC & BIODYNAMIC. Vegan-friendly
A brut Crémant. ”Equinoxe” (the time, twice each year, when the sun crosses the celestial equator and day and night are of equal length, around March 20-21 and September 22-23)
Harmonious grape composition of “Clairette Blanche”, “Aligoté” and “Muscat à petits grains” with inviting and nuanced aromas. Vinified according to “Méthode Traditionnelle” with subsequent storage for 18 months on lamellae. Perfect as an aperitif and for fish dishes and light meat.
The vineyard was established in 1985 by the Monge and Granon families, two winegrowing families for four generations. The Monge Granon vineyard covers 37 HA (86,48 AC) – located in the heart of the Clairette de Die area. Located in the heart of the Rhône valley, dominated by mountains, their vineyard grows on rocky and steep mountain slopes, among the highest in France. Their wonderful wines are due to the changing weather with alpine influences and Provencal sun, severe winters and dry summers.
