Winemaker's Notes

Grapes are selected from vines that grow from parcels of superior quality. The best quality lots bearing old vines consisting primarily of Grenache and Rolle (Vermentino).

Critical Acclaim

"What pretty petal-like colors accompany the wonderful aromas of sliced peaches, stones and chalk to this rosé. It's very complex too with its full body, and dense intensity. Lasts a long time on the palate and takes off on the finish. Aged 10 months in 50% new oak 600-liter barrels. From mostly Grenache with some Rolle, 60 to 80-year-old vines."
95 Points

"A stunning effort, with aromas and flavors of dried pear, apple crisp and candied citrus that are reminiscent of fine white Burgundy. Powerfully spicy, showing crystallized ginger, dried sage and tarragon notes. Seductively creamy on the refined and intense finish"
93 Points

"A powerful, wood-aged rosé that shows great richness, density and structure. Treat this as a fine wine and you’ll appreciate the texture, the mature berry fruits, the spice and vanilla flavors. Weighty and full in the mouth, this could even age well for another year or two."
93 Points

"Pale onion skin color. Complex bouquet evokes honeydew melon, tangerine, anise and vanilla, with mineral and floral topnotes. Juicy and precise on entry, then fleshier and deeper in the mid-palate, offering sappy, concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a touch of buttered toast. Tangy minerality adds lift and cut to the finish, which features bitter citrus pith and ginger qualities. This wine could be a stand-in for a powerful white and has the heft to work with assertively seasoned foods. "
