Tasting notes

A nice pale colour. Complex nose of ripe citrus fruits, mandarin, spices. Full and delicate mouth, very elegant. To be drunk young.

Production


Terroir

Old grenache and rolle planted on pebbly siliceous-clay terraces. Syrah selected on a dark volcanic hillside.

Vinification

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.
