The philosophy behind the Arnoux & Fils ‘Genus’ is a simple one. Minimal intervention winemaking and production in line with Mother Nature.
Fully certified as being both Organic and Biodynamic, meaning that in the vineyard no pesticides or chemicals are used just natural fertilisers, hand-pruning and harvesting.
Cotes du Rhone Villages is similar in style to that of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, having similar constraints on yields and rules, such as a minimum natural alcohol level of 12.5% ABV, for both appellations. The wine is often lighter than Chateauneuf and more approachable in youth.
Comprising 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre and matured for 6 months in old French oak, the Genus has a refined power. Wonderful fresh fruit aromas leading to juicy, bight blackberry and red cherry flavours. A subtle toastiness rounds off this velvety smooth wine beautifully.
