With a return to Gascony IGP for the 2021 vintage, this cuvée is made of equal parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot with a touch of the local Tannat grape variety to add body. The secret of the winemaking is to capture all the delicate aromatics and flavours of the red grape varieties but then to cool vinify the pale-coloured juice with all the expertise of white wine vinifcation to create a crisp, refreshing and easy drinking wine.
Aromas of crushed berries (soft white and red currants) and appealing fruit flavours. Dry, with a burst of fruit and a refreshing finish. This is a friendly, fresh rosé with real character.
A great all rounder - as an apéritif its delicious but this rosé can easily be matched to an antipasti platter, shellfish such as grilled prawns or tomato based pasta dishes.
