Presentation

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.
Description
La Vieille Ferme Rosé has everything you would expect from a good rosé wine. Fruit, freshness and a beautiful colour. Ideal as an aperitif or with a meal amongst friends…
Situation

Terroir
Sediment left by the seas of the Tertiary period at the base of the chalky Mont Ventoux. Red Mediterranean soils originating from cretaceous hard chalk, calcareous debris and round stones from old alluvium.
Process
Bleeding in stainless steel tanks.
Varietals
Cinsault
Grenache
Syrah

Tasting advices

Tasting notes
Pretty pale pink color with pastel undertones. The nose is seductive with subtle hints of red fruit (currants, strawberries, raspberries) and delicate flowers (rose, hawthorn). Well balanced in the mouth, between freshness and roundness, it offers a refreshing lemony finish.
Serving tips
10-12°C in tulip shaped glasses.
