Tasting Note

Rose gold color, fully opened, intense fruit with a floral nose makes this wine a very attractive rosé. The palate is fleshy, full with aromas such as “pêches de vigne”, pomegranate, followed by delicate flinty spicy notes. Generous and bright, the feel of wine naturally aged on the lees from the concrete egg brings a very long fresh and aromatic finish. Balanced & quenching.
