  • Winemaker Notes Alain Brumont has always been passionate about Gascony; for him it represents an exceptional reserve of micro-terroirs. Tannat-Syrah-Merlot: three big complementary grape varieties for an unsual, high-spirited rosé. Velvet and satin from the Merlot, energy and liveliness from the Tannat, and raspberries and redcurrants from the Syrah make this a rather special, seductive, very moreish rosé. A lovely expression of a festive, harmonious Gascony.
  • Tasting Notes A real gastronomic rosé; rose petal color and a surprising generosity and fullness on the attack: well-rounded with lots of ripe fruit. Very fresh finish with lovely mouthfeel.
  • Vineyard
    • Harvest: Early Harvest with slow pressing
    • Age: 40 year old vines
    • Soil: Clay-limestone hills located in Ténarèze. This terroir is called Peyrusquet, and consists of layers of gray, cracked clay 1-2 meters in depth covering limestone cliffs and is comparable to the Bordeaux right bank.
  • Vinification The grapes are harvested at the beginning of the ripening stage. Very slow pressing. Settling at 0 degrees C. Pressed rosé. Vinification in stainless steel tanks at low temperature for maximum fruitiness. Maturing in stainless steel vats (6 months) on fine lees to gain body and volume.
    • Fermentation: cold fermentation, raised on the lees in stainless steel tanks
    • Ageing: 6 months on fine lees to gain body and volume
