“Equinoxe” (the sun is exactly vertically above the equator, and here day and night are of the same length on March 20-21 and September 22-23). The wine has inviting and nuanced aromas. Taste of apples, peaches, and flowers. Good body, good acidity, good balance. Vinified according to “Méthode Traditionnelle” with subsequent storage for 18 months.
The wine is perfect as an apéritif as well as for fish dishes and light meat.
Monge Granon was established in 1985 by the Monge and Granon families, two winegrowing families for four generations. The winery is in the heart of Clairette de Die (located in the heart of the Rhône valley). The vineyard is dominated by mountains and is located 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, tough winters, and dry summers.
