Anne Pichon Sauvage Gris 2019

Tasting Notes

Anne Pichon and her late husband, Marc Pichon, started an agrarian-bohemian life together in the 1990’s when they moved into an abandoned farm house at the base of Mont Ventoux. They began to resurrect a defunct domaine called Murmurium, meaning “the buzzing song of bees.”  While the 15 hectare vineyard was in poor shape, the site was organic for many years which help the Pichon’s vision. Today, Anne leads the vineyard and cellar work at the winery along with her sister-in-law Véronique who manages the commercial affairs. The wines themselves are named Sauvage inspired by the Pichons’ respect for and attachment to nature.

The grapes are certified organic and grown on sandy pebbly limestone rich soil. The harvest is done at dawn and early morning, before temperatures rise. The youngest vines (20-25 years old) are used in order to get a better aromatic profile. Fermentation occurs with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel after five hours of skin contact. The wine is aged for 5 months before bottling.

TASTING NOTES

The wine has an inviting nose of fresh red berries, nectarine and citrus.  Energetic in the mouth, this Provençal rosé is refreshingly clean and dry.  It offers flavors of orange zest, red berry fruit, nectarine and apricot. It is medium to plus in body, with medium acidity and finish.

FOOD PAIRING

This rosé is easily enjoyed as a summer sipper but is flexible and bold enough to marry with a wide range of fare, from salads to seafood to backyard barbecue!  From the dairy department, try it with fresh goat cheese laced with Provençal herbs. Enjoy with chicken (or veggie chicken patties), or antipasto.
