Chateau de la Selve are based in the Ardeche. Petite Selve is described as a vin de copain, with equal amounts of young vine Cinsault and Grenache with 20% Syrah. This is a bright juicy wine, packed with concentrated red fruit. The cuvaison is shorter at 20 days and has 30% of the press juice from the rosé wine added before fermentation. At 50,000 bottles, it is the principle cuvee of the estate and designed for immediate drinking. Delicious.
