WINE MAKING

TERROIR

Clay and limestone soils facing south/south-east, located at the bottom of Luberon mountain. Aging: stainless steel tanks aging over fne lees until Christmas. Clarifcation by racking and fltration before bottling.

TASTING

A beautiful garden composed of very different, bright, nuanced, subtle scents, for a very complex nose: slight citrus notes, vivacity of small red berries, freshness of strawberry and finesse of rose and lychee. The intensity of the perfumes is found in the mouth with a frank attack, without concession. The mid-palate offers many variations, fruit explosion sensation with a lot of liveliness and freshness. The finish is long and saline.

PAIRING

A generous and gourmet rosé made to be shared with friends. Delicatessen, grilled beef, red mullet fllets, salmon carpaccio, octopus salad, veal tajine… Here, place to the audacity, in any season. Because yes, thanks to its beautiful generosity, you can also pair this rosé on your most winter dishes. One watchword : D.A.R.E. !
