Region /Terroir: AOC Côtes de Provence Cru Classé
Grapes: a complex blend of traditional Provençal varieties: Cinsaut (20%), Shiraz (15%), Grenache (25%) Mouvèdre (25%), Rolle (5%), Tibouren (5%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%)
Alcohol: 13% VOL
Soil: Slatey and sandy, on a hillside.
Wine making: The grapes are harvested by machine. Fermentation occurs in low-temperature stainless steel tanks.
Red wine grapes are used to make rosé. The colour is mostly the natural colour of the juice, but a brief period of skin contact or maceration can add extra colour. In Côtes de Provence at least 20% of the wine must be saigneé, which means “bled”. After crushing the free-run juice is run off after a short pre-fermentation maceration, producing a pale pink wine.
Cellaring potential: Drink now
Our Tasting notes: Pale pink, elegant nose with citrus fruits aromas. Supple, fruity, complex with a soft and silky “finale”.
