Tasting Notes

A lovely rose that is balanced and joyful. Aromas of raspberry, lemon and strawberry are appealing and fragrant. Medium weight and juicy with a melange of tart red berry juice, nectarine and citrus. Refreshing, clean and focused, this is an excellent value!

WINE INFORMATION

Brothers Soard, Patrick and Vincent, own and operate this impeccable domaine the cellars of which are situated in the village of Beaumes de Venise, in the shadows of Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail. Their great-grandfather was an award winning winemaker as early as 1902. They focused production on the celebrated dessert wine from the area, Muscat de Beaumes de Venise. In 1988, Patrick and Vincent, with the encouragement of their mother they renewed the cellar and expanded the estate to vinify and bottle the full range of appellations available. Their estate is certified organic.

Grapes for this blend were grown on soils of clay, limestone and silica soils.  The Cinsault and the Grenache grapes are pressed while the Syrah grapes are bled*.

* The saignée method (meaning “bleeding” in French), involves making rosé as a by-product of red wine fermentation, where a portion of the pink juice from the grape must is removed at an early stage, which is fermented separately to produce rosé.
