Xavier Frissant Les roses du Clos 2016
This rare cousin of Sauvignon (also known as Sauvignon Rose and Surin Gris), which is tinted like
Gewurztraminer, when ripe renders in Frissant’s hands a wine of surprising substance and authority.
Fermented in old 400 litre barrels, it is quite unmarked by wood flavours but offers an excellent texture. It has
developed quite a following for its dramatic, almost exotic nose of roses and mastic. It is lively, dry and spicy,
brimming with vigor and animation. This new vintage has exceptional cut and focus.
