Versant RougeRed Wine
Our vines have been carefully chosen to complement the characteristics of the local terroir. Originally established in 1835, the estate boasts a beautiful, hilly location.
Made from grapes grown on the southwestern slopes of our estate in pebbly soil that is among the richest in the Rougemont area. The deep crimson Versant Rouge is a blend of Frontenac Noir and Marquette grapes. The bouquet is dominated by aromas of black fruit, blueberry jam and blackcurrant with spicy undertones. The mouth is fruity and full-bodied, with a hint of roasted cocoa, followed by a firm mineral finish.
