Tasty and bright. It could have just been me and the day, but presented as straightforward and just a touch less than completely refined.

TYPE OF SOIL: White clay & Lutetan limestone
GRAPE VARIETIES: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Mourvèdre, Pinot noir, Sauvignon, Petit Manseng et Muscat
VINIFICATION: Bleed Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the younger Daumas Gassac vineyards. The “free-run” grape juice is then fermented in a closed tank so as to retain all the fermenting gas.
TOTAL PRODUCTION: 52 000 bottles
MATURING: 3 to 4 months in closed stainless steel tank.
HARVEST : 100% Manual.
YIELD: 45 hl/ha
ALCOHOL BY VOL.: 11,5% Vol.

I love this rosé. So delicious. It somehow tastes like red watermelon without being sweet
