Le Grand Cros #7

-

INTRODUCTION
Dry and fruity, this rosé seduces by its aromatic expression, elegance and freshness. From the heart of Provence on Julian Faulkner’s family estate, this rosé offers the aromatic quintessence of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, and Rolle, and a careful balance between character and elegance.

CLIMATE
The 2019 vintage began with a warm and pleasant winter that lead to an early spring followed by a warm and very dry summer. This impeded the normal ripening of the grapes but with patience we waited for them to achieve optimal ripeness. Small yields but great potential.

GRAPE VARIETIES
Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, Rolle.

TASTING NOTES
A peachy pink. The nose is enticing and complex. On the nose aromas of litchi, pomelo and ripe white peaches are intense. The attack in the mouth juicy with lovely length that persists with the fruity expression.

MEAL SUGGESTION
Mullet, appetizer, Provencal dishes, vegetables stew.
