Dry and fruity, this rosé seduces by its aromatic expression,
elegance and freshness. From the heart of Provence on Julian
Faulkner’s family estate, this rosé offers the aromatic
quintessence of Cinsault, Carignan and Grenache, and a careful
balance between character and elegance.
Very pale salmon pink. The nose is dominated by wild berries with
some fresh strawberry, cherry, grapefruit along with some mineral
notes. The mouth is both soft and fresh with a nice fruity presence
including cherries and red currant.
Mullet, appetizer, Provencal dishes, and vegetable stews.
2014 is an unusual vintage. After a relatively mild autumn, the
spring was colder than usual, and disturbed by an episode of hail
which slowed the maturation process, while allowing an expressive
vintage. It is characterized by a nice maturity, well rounded,
refined and warm wines.
0% Cinsault, 30% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre.
