Salmon-pink in colour with a nose of fresh red fruit and sour candies.
Deliciously juicy on the palate, fruity and long-lasting.
The Cabernet Franc used to produce this classic rosé style is planted on chalky-clay soil in the vineyards of Coudray-Macouard. This harvest yielded 60 hl/ha and was fully destemmed before a gentle pressing. Maceration was undertaken for 12 to 24 hours to obtain colour and body before fermentation occurred at controlled temperatures to preserve the fresh fruit aromas. Filtration was through kieselguhr and the wine was cooled before bottling to avoid the formation of tartaric crystals.
