Château Des Bertrands Côtes de Provence Estate Rosé
WHY WE LOVE IT
- SIngle Estate, farmed organically on old vines (30 years). The extended lees contact produces a rose with beautiful texture.
Varietal Composition: 40% Grenache, 40% Cinsault, 10% Rolle, 10% others
Elaboration: Selection of the grapes followed by direct pressing to collect free-run juice. Decanting and fermentation at 64°F and aged for 3 months on fine lees.
Tasting Notes: A very pale and clear peach color, delicate nose with fine flavors of ripe summer white peaches, flowers and some exotic fruits, very round and mellow palate, soft touch, almost silky, and long savory salty finish.
