A lovely expression of a festive, harmonious Gascony
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.
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.
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.
