La Vieille Ferme Luberon Rosé - 2017

Fresh and fruity.... La Vieille Ferme Luberon rosé has all the characteristics of an attractive rosé.


The vintage
This 2017 vintage will be remembered as the year of all records: the driest year in 30 years, non-interventionist vineyard work, optimal harvest conditions, a very small yield due to climatic hazards, and wines with very rich potential.
If you like easy drinking rosé wines, this one is perfectly suiting aperitifs and simple cookery.
Located largely in the regional park of the Luberon, on equal distance from Avignon, Aix-en-Provence and Manosque.
The average altitude of the vineyard is at 300 meters. Late maturity zone.
Ancient alluvial deposits with flat and round pebbles, limestone marl, some areas called Collets du Luberon, meaning rocky zones close to clay, results of alpine diluvium flows.
Wine elaborated by Saignée method. Vinification in stainless steel tanks until January, the wine is then bottled after fining.

Tasting advices

Pretty pale pink color with pastel undertones. Fresh and very aromatic on the nose, this wine has a delicate bouquet with notes of red fruit (currants, cherries), and citrus. Good balance between sweetness and acidity in the mouth. We find notes of fresh fruit with beautiful persistence. This 2017 wine is fresh and balanced, a beautiful expression of this beautiful fruity vintage.
