Côtes du Ventoux rosé

AOC Ventoux rosé Domaine des Anges 2013

Terroir

The Domaine des Anges is a small, beautiful vineyard situated at 350 meters on a hillside across the valley from Mont Ventoux, the Giant of Provence. It benefits from altitude, a variety of soils ranging from calcareous clays to rich stony ferrous, the position of its vineyards and cooling evening breezes in summer.

Made respecting traditions, going back to Roman times, and nature, through the use of organic practices, which, blended with care and experience, come together in a wine we believe will exceed your expectations.

Assemblage

95% Grenache and 5% Syrah.

Vinification

The grapes were handpicked before being crushed and destemmed. The juice was macerated in contact with the skins for 24 hours. The skins were then pressed and the juice cold settled for 48 hours before racking.

The wine was then cool-fermented at 12°C in stainless steel tanks before being lightly filtered and bottled early in spring to keep its freshness

Tasting notes

Colour: Magnificent colour of pale flesh pink with blue lights.

Nose: Expressive rendition of berry fruit interspersed with some creamy character.

Palate: Good balance between sweetness and freshness which makes for an enticing combination. The fruit dominates in a very pleasant way: red currants and little cherries. The finish is slightly spicy (ginger) and is both creamy and refreshing.

Cellaring: A wine for sun and chat! Should be drunk up within two years.
