The color is a gleaming deep purple. Abundant aromas of blackcurrant and cherry characterize Raïs, with a lightly spicy note of licorice giving intensity to the wine. The palate is full-bodied and generous, with silky tannins and a long elegant finish.
The region of Tlemcen is situated 150 kilometers west of Oran, and the vines are cultivated on mountain slopes of 700 to 800 meters altitude. The climate is cool and dry. The soils are gravel and marl on a limestone bedrock.
The grapes are entirely hand-picked. Following total destemming, fermentation takes place under controlled temperatures and a long maceration period allows this wine to express all its potential.
Serve between 18 and 19 °C
