Ensédune Cabernet Franc Rosé
At the edge of the Mediterranean sea, the Oppidum Romain d’Ensérune dominates the terroir of the Ensédune wines. It is characterized by one of the warmest and dryest climates of France located at the west of Béziers. Proud of a thousand-year-old tradition, the Ensérune winegrowers were keen to develop their vineyards by acclimatizing grape varieties from various horizons. Created by teamwork, the Ensédune range is the product of generations of collaboration by winegrowers and presents unusual grape varieties for monovarietal wines.
Rosé made by direct pressing, with complex aromas (peppermint, redcurrant and violet). Highly concentrated on the palate with grilled red pepper notes and a lingering finish.
A perfect match with mediterranean cuisine and summer dishes. Serve chilled at 10 °C .
It is grown near the village of Puisserguier. It loves deep alluvial soils alongside rivers and enjoys growing in damp conditions like all Cabernets.
