Story

The vintage
The 2018 vintage is characterised by exceptional weather conditions. Flowering took place in the best possible conditions, with a historically abundant grape output. A few rainy episodes at the end of the spring complicated things a little with an attack of mildew, but the good weather then settled down until harvest, which took place under idyllic conditions.The wines are beautiful.
Description
An intense rosé typical of Côtes du Rhône.
Situation
This wine is produced from our vineyard Le Grand Prébois in Orange.
Terroir
There are 2 types of soils at Le Grand Prébois, stone, clay and limestone on one side and gravel and clay on the other.
Process
The grapes are harvested early in the morning to benefit from the freshness of the night. The proximity of the vines to the Grand Prébois cellars allows the grapes to be pressed straight after picking. After pressing, the juices are cold settled in order to remove suspended particles. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and lasts about 15 days, the temperatures are regulated between 14 and 16 ° C. The wines are then racked and aged in stainless steel tanks until bottling.

"Flavors of sweet-tart raspberry and crisp watermelon rind are thirst quenching in this dry rosé made from Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah grapes. While full bodied and silky, it's briskly concentrated, finishing with an invigorating mineral tone."
