From the Tank®

From the Tank® is a delicious Côtes du Rhône that is economical & ecological, & lasts for a month once opened! Côtes du Rhône in a 3 Liter box (the equivalent of 4 bottles of wine). More Green than Glass!

3 Liter bag-in-box is the most carbon efficient wine package & produces the least waste – with a 55% lower carbon footprint than traditional glass bottles in terms of energy needed for glass production and transportation, and 85% less landfill waste. Paperboard is easily recycled.
Lighter weight means reduced fossil fuel emissions.

The light weight makes “From the Tank®” perfect for a picnic, a party, or simply to carry home and put in the refrigerator.

Bag-in-boxes last up to one month once opened, if stored in the refrigerator.
The vacuum sealed pack inside the box keeps the wine fresh, so that you can drink a glass a night and avoid the waste that would come from a traditional bottle (ie regular glass bottles go bad in a few days).

From the Tank® was born out of the collaboration between François Ecot of Jenny & François Selections & Denis Deschamps of Les Vignerons D’ Estézargues fame. They decided on a blend for the three-liter bag-in-box that would be the exact same quality as what Jenny & François bring to the US in bottles. Each year, the From the Tank® wine fountain is a special blend made just for Jenny & François Selections.
Great for serving by the glass, for parties, picnics, or for people who want only a glass of wine a day. The conservation is much longer then bottles once they are opened & it is light to carry. The box also has a much smaller carbon footprint than bottles because it is so light to ship.

FROM THE TANK: Red
6 x 3L per case

From the Tank® tech sheet

Vinification: hand harvested. No external yeast & no enzymes are employed during the winemaking process. The bunches are de-stemmed & the fruit undergoes fifteen days of maceration & the wine is stored in enamel-lined tanks. The wine is bagged & boxed on demand.

Tasting Note: Garnet in the glass with shimmering highlights. Elegant notes of smoky red fruit, violet, sweet herb & a note of baking chocolate.
The palate is rich with ripe cherry & berry flavors, & a mineral note that is followed by supple acidity & velvety tannins. This is a very expressive red with a great concentration of fruit & yet it is never overly extracted. The wine finishes with floral notes & a dash of black pepper.
