This rose has a fine, complex nose, with toasted, smoky aromas, then evolving towards rose, raspberry and a finish of coconut and almond. On the paplate the wine offers a harmonious mouth revealing a velvety wine, of great fullness and very persistent. It offers a finely vanilla finish with notes of melted wood, which does not mask the typicity of this wine. 90% Grenache, 10% Cinsault.
The harvest is manual. The berries macerate in tanks overnight. The fermentation temperature is adapted according to the maturity of the grape as well as the quality of the vintage. This wine is aged in oak barrels for 2 to 4 months on fine lees. Regular batonnage for a few months accentuates its roundness and rich texture
