A blend of 58% Grenache, 18% Cinsault, 10% Roussanne, 7% Mourvedre, 4% Syrah and 3% Grenache Blanc.
Fresh and bright with a pale pink color and a soupcon of blue rose. Hints of wild strawberry, white cherry, apple blossom and the barest whiff of spearmint. Palate is quite dry and zesty with pale red fruits, blood orange citrus and a lean yet supple finish. Another excellent example of our skill with Rose, the 2008 has a greater quantity of Grenache than previously, yet it is the Cinsault and Roussane that really shine; adding complex notes of stone fruit and the nuanced texture of old vines. Delicious today but will develop added richness and aroma with an additional 6-12 months in the bottle.
