Tasting Notes

This is a dark rosé and drinks almost like a light red wine. It is hearty and chewy with plenty of stuffing – one can tell it comes from older vines. Fruit flavors include black raspberries, plums, cherries and acai berries. This is dry and crisp with plenty of structure and some savory, garrigue notes and minerality to balance the fruit.

WINE INFORMATION

This rosé  is made via the saignée method. The grapes go into a tank for a short period of time, usually overnight. After this short maceration period, the juice "bled" off has absorbed some color from the skins. The fermentation is long and slow at controlled temperatures. Six months of aging in concrete tank follows.

Remains of a Roman winery have been found at the site of the Domaine Faillenc Sainte Marie, a testament to the ancient tradition of winegrowing at that location. The domaine, in its present form, was founded during the reign of Louis XIV by an officer returning from service on the Indian subcontinent. Situated just outside of the tiny village of Douzens a mere 12 kilometers east of the ancient walled city of Carcassonne, Faillenc Sainte Marie has recovered its past allure under the careful guidance of the energetic Gibert family and now produces an exciting range of red, white, and rose wines.
