Info about the wine

Cuvée of Grenache , Syrah , Mourvèdre , Cinsault and a touch of Rolle , harvested at 530 m altitude. The Grenache vines are between 20 and 70 years old, Syrah 20 to 50 years and all other vines at least 10 years.

Info about the expansion

Direct pressing was followed by 4 days of cold maceration. At 12 °C, 20 % of the wine were fermented for 4 weeks to 50 % in 228 l barriques and to 50 % in 600 l half barrels before being blended back with the remaining 80 % 3 months before bottling.

Color

Elegant light mother-of-pearl with silvery lightening towards the rim.

Nose

The 2020 Le Rosé smells like the sea of blossoms of a Provençal garden. If you've ever been to the beautiful Chêne Bleu estate, you'll feel transported right back there. Small red berries, raspberries, cool fruit tea and wild mint follow. Fine spicy pepper notes, tomato and a little pepper intensify its Mediterranean impression.

Palate

On the palate, it shows animating red berry fruit and intense Provençal spice. An extremely delicate and expressive drop beyond the mainstream, which can be wonderfully paired with fine and aromatic cuisine from southern climes. Optimal even to dark meat!
