With its distinctly Provençal blend, this fresh rosé serves up mouth-watering notes!

Tasting

2017 – An attractive grapefruit flesh colour, and a powerful nose of citrus (kumquat) and red berry fruits.

On the palate: fresh, with moreish notes of ripe fruits, but also impressive length.

additional Information

Terroir: This rosé is a seriously Mediterranean blend. Located in the south of the estate, it comes from two terroirs: one has sandy-clay soil, where varieties such as Syrah and Grenache thrive; the other, clay-loam soil, planted with Cinsault and Mourvèdre.
Degrés: 13,5%
Serve at: Serve at : 8 - 10°C
Grapes: 33 % Grenache - 33% Mourvèdre - 33% Syrah
Rendements: 50hl/ha

Winemaking

The grapes are cooled before undergoing cold maceration on the skins. The juices are then stabulated for 3 weeks (at 0-5°C) to release their aromas.

Food and Wine suggestions

Perfect for seafood, hot-stone cooking, aperitifs … but also in its element with more elaborate, Mediterranean cuisine.

Try as soon as you can with stuffed Provençal vegetables!
