50% Grenache, 45% Cinsault, 5% Syrah
This is the only region where ONLY rose is produced, and also the region best known for aging them. The wines are always darker because vignerons leave the skins on longer when fermenting them. This one is full of classic cherry soda and strawberry ripeness with an explosive nose. Firm texture in a backbone of sand and silt follow, with a super dry, very long finish. Juicy, intense, and extremely quaffable, it’s the perfect summer wine for red drinkers. It’s perfect for anything on the grill, balsamic dressing, olives, and cheese. Try it with brunch for a treat.
