"Equinoxe" means equinox (the sun is exactly vertical above the equator, and here day and night are of the same length on March 20-21 and September 22-23). The wine has inviting and nuanced aromas. Taste of apples, peaches and flowers. Good body, good acidity, good balance. Vinified according to the "Méthode Traditionnelle" with subsequent aging for 18 months on slats.
The wine is perfect as an apéritif as well as with fish dishes and light meat.
Monge Granon was established in 1985 by the Monge and Granon families, two wine growing families for four generations. The winery is located in the heart of Clairette de Die (located in the heart of the Rhône Valley). The vineyard is dominated by mountains, and is located on rocky and steep hillsides (among the highest in France). Their beautiful wines are due to the changing weather with alpine influences and Provencal sun, severe winters and dry summers.
