Tasting Notes

This is a more hearty style of rosé perfect for full-flavored meals such as pork, chicken, red meat and game. Aromas of red cherry, plum and cherry pit follow through to the palate, staying bold and bright. Pure raspberry, pomegranate and cherry are candied, yet balanced with savory dried herb notes. This is succulent and satisfying; consider for a cool evening by the fire, a hearty or spicy meal or to enjoy on a hot summer day instead of red wine.

 

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.
