La Ferme Julien Luberon Rosé 2015

Story

The story
If you like easy drinking rosé wines, this one is perfectly suiting aperitifs and simple cookery.
The vintage
2015 was a magnificent year in the south as well, characterized by excellent sanitary conditions thanks to the mild, wet winter, followed by a relatively hot, dry spring. The vines coped well with the extreme heat and lack of rain in the summer thanks to good hydric reserves. Following satisfactory flowering, rapid and regular ripening was assisted by rain that fell in August, producing berries rich in phenolic compounds and anthocyanins. As in the north, harvesting took place under excellent conditions.

The average altitude of the vineyard is at 300 meters. Late maturity zone.
