Cote des Roses rosé
This vintage Cote des Roses celebrates theArt de Vivre Mediterranean. The soil, very varied, is essentially made up of hard limestone from the garrigues, schist soils but also gravel brought by the rivers of Languedoc. The climate, hot and windy ("semi-arid Mediterranean climate with mild winter variations") favours the ripening of the grapes and their good health, while keeping freshness thanks to the altitude and the effect of the sea, which mitigates the high summer temperatures. The bottle has a new rose-shaped bottom, created by a young designer from the Ecole Boulle. It's a wine that offers itself like a bouquet of roses!
A soft, pale and brilliant rosé with bluish reflections that evolve over time into more orangey hues.
Aromas of red fruits, blackcurrant and redcurrant. Floral notes of rose, citrus and grapefruit complete this palette.
Fresh, greedy and endowed with a great aromatic persistence and a beautiful balance. Fresh finish with notes of English candy.
Custody and service advice
Serve at 10°C as an aperitif or with shellfish and subtly spicy dishes.
The different grape varieties are harvested separately with the aim of reaching the optimum maturity for each one. Vinification is therefore regulated in such a way as to respect the specific characteristics of the grape varieties and the capacities of the terroirs. The harvest is mechanical with an on-board sorter. The grapes are destemmed, cooled to 8°C and sent to the press to extract the rosé must. Particular attention is paid to the pressing process so as to preserve only the highest quality juice. The juices are then settled more or less according to the desired aromatic profile. Fermentation lasts between 15 and more than 30 days depending on the degree of clarification and temperature applied. The particularity of these vinifications lies in the attention paid to the colour and aromatic purity of the wines. Finally, after a light fining, the wines are bottled quite early to preserve their fresh and fruity character.
