Specific plots have been selected for this wine, conducted with an organic farming approach, with the idea to produce a rosé that would render the complexity and finesse of its terroir.
Thanks to the cooler location of Aussières, our Grenache mature slowly, developing a wide palette of delicate fruity aromas. It contributes greatly to the elegance of the wine and confers its silky mouthfeel. Syrah adds a zest of freshness to the blend and contributes to the balance between generosity and tension.

In 2020 a fairly mild winter led to and early budbreak and increased the threat of cryptogamic diseases. The summer was warm and relatively wet, with a warm and dry after season, without any heatwaves, which allowed the grapes to slowly reach their optimal aromatic potential whilst retaining sufficient acidity.
As we moved into the season the advance was reduced and the grapes were harvested ten days earlier than previous vintage.
TASTING NOTES (AT BOTTLING):
The robe is clear and brilliant, delicately pink apricot in colour with cherry hues.
Overt and complex on the nose with flowery notes (white flowers) combined with acacia honey and toasted brioche.
On the palate, the wine develops a rich aromatic palette of summer fruit (peach, melon, red and black currant) laced with aromas of sour candy.
Round and powerful, this wine presents a great balance with a generous mouthfeel layered with notes of toasted almonds and hazelnuts and a refreshing backbone.
The wine is full with great persistence and hints of butterscotch on the final.
