The vineyards are low-lying, no more than 50m above sea level. There are two principal types of terroir: the first is ancient Villafranchian soil, a red-ochre stony terroir of galets roulés (smooth rounded stones). The second is richer, deep silty soil. The yields permitted for AOP (40hl/ha) are half those permitted for Vin de Pays (up to 80hl/ha). This beautiful rosé is all made in the press, no saignée forJóuselet. A sophisticated blend of 70% Cinsault and 30% Grenache Noir, kept on fine lees to nourish the wines through the winter and spring, the result is a wine of fragrance and ‘delicatesse’.
Dry, delicate and elegant – classic rosé from Southern France. Delicate spice aromas leading seductively to a soft, vinous and round palate with abundant ripe fruit.
Served chilled, this is great picnic and barbeque wine for the summer. Try also with cold meats, seasonal salads or simply on its own.
