  • Tasting Notes Concentrated in both color and flavor, the Les Gardettes rosé delivers a healthy dose of French relaxation just like good rosé should. This blend of Cinsault, Counoise and Grenache is a true rosé de saignée (French for "bleed") where some of the wine is removed from the vat leaving a smaller amount of wine left to bleed with the skins which intensifies color, tannins and concentration. Les Gardettes is full of strawberry, peach and other stone fruit flavors supported by good acidity and freshness.
  • Vineyard Soil Profile: Silty-sandy soil with clay
  • Vinification The fruit is de-stemmed and then kept on skins for 8 days in order to produce a fruity style wine with light tannin extraction. Aged in concrete
    tanks for 18 months before bottling.
