Les Roses de Marie 2016

Its story

Like all our grapes in the 2016 season, they took a long time coming. Harvesting began on 4 October (in 2015, all the grapes were in by then) with the Cabernet-Sauvignons and Cabernet Francs in the 3 parcels we had chosen for Les Roses de Marie 2016. These were pressed immediately and vinified separately, then two blending sessions sufficed to determine the proportion of each. On 14 February (for Valentine’s Day!), Les Roses de Marie 2016 were ready Now we just need some sun!

Tasting (12.03.17) - Marc Quertinier, oenologist

Pale and slightly salmon colour.
Elegant nose, fine, persistent. Ripe Passe-Crassane pear with a fresh, liquorice touch.
Fleshy mouth, full, long, rather vinous, with light salivating bitters of citrus at the end of the mouth.
A meal rosé with a certain density (salinity) which stands out from many current roses that flirt too much with the grapes.
Serving temperature: 5 to 6 ° C.
Harmonises with: small stuffed, zucchini fritters, papeton of eggplants, grilled lamb, bouillabaisse, fried red mullets fillets, sea bream with fennel...
