SKU: 887854
Region: FR | Rhone | Southern Rhone

Rating: Wine Advocate 94

Equal parts of old-vine Grenache from sandy soils (in Lirac) and stony soils (in Chateauneuf du Pape) were co-fermented to produce this unique cuvee.

La Genese was fermented and aged in a large Cocciopesto* vessel, called the Drunk Turtle.

(Cocciopesto is obtained with the blend of stone fragments, crushed clay, sand and cement binder)

Organic & Biodynamic

It's a full-bodied, concentrated effort, with bold black cherry fruit, an expansive mouthfeel and silky tannins.

Formerly known as la Creation and renamed for legal reasons.
