A nice pale colour. Complex nose of ripe citrus fruits, mandarin, spices. Full and delicate mouth, very elegant. To be drunk young.
Old grenache and rolle planted on pebbly siliceous-clay terraces. Syrah selected on a dark volcanic hillside.
It is a «saignée» (bleeding) rosé. After harvesting, grenache and rolle are destemmed and blended in stainless steel vats. We let them macerate for a few hours to extract their finest flavours. Bleeding juice is then fermented at moderate temperature to preserve our terroir’s expression. It is aged on the lees to enhance elegance. A small part of the blend is vinified and aged in oak barrels. At the end of aging, we add a touch of syrah to the blend to improve balance and complexity.
