Dom. Rouge-Bleu 2022 Dentelle Rosé CORK

Caroline goes from strength to strength with her rosé. The old, deep-rooted vines cultivated bio-dynamically enabled her to achieve proper ripeness with the familiar and improbably low alcohol level of 12%. Carignan-based rosé is a relative rarity, and this one has an irresistible snap to go with the expected berry fruit. Southern rosé does not get much more refreshing and delicious than this!

Notes from the Producer: VINEYARD: Situated in Sainte-Cecile-Les-Vignes, Domaine Rouge-Bleu finds inspiration in biodynamic principles on all of its 8,5ha, of which half rest in the COtes du RhOne Villages appellation Sainte Cecile.
Our low yields are the natural outcome of old, deep-rooted vines that sit on a stony soil of ancient riverbed and garrigue. Coupled with the Mediterranean climate of long, hat, dry summers and the rot-inhibiting Mistral wind, our vineyard is the perfect environment for berry maturation, giving a pure expression of terroir.
VINIFICATION: Hand-harvested early in the season lo retain the natural acidity of the fruit, our grapes are picked al sunrise lo retain freshness and brought lo the cellar in small containers for direct pressing. WHd yeast fermentation takes place in small tanks that, along with temperature control, retain the freshness of primary aromas and flavours. Brief maturation in tank before being bottled with light mration at the Demaine in the January following the Harvest. Minimal sulphite addition. Screwcap has been chosen to retain the freshness and primary aromas of this wine.
TASTING NOTES:
Colour: Pale salmon pink.
Nose: Fresh red berry fruits, rose petal, pink grapefruit
Palate: Elegant Provence style rose. Aromatic notes of while fleshed peach and raspberry. Crisp acidity with a well balanced finish.
WINE AND FOOD MATCHING: Serve chilled.
