Jean-Luc is pioneering vineyard development in a beautiful, scenic area just north of Marseille, and this wine is close to his heart, reflecting the style he wants to make from this area.
A light, refreshing, dry rose with abundant yet subtle red fruit characters, dominated by powerful aromas reminiscent of the Mediterranean scrubland (garrigue).
On the palate notes of black olives, herbs and fresh fruit evoke the terroir of the Mediterranean coast. The beautiful and aptly named Blue Coast in a glass.
This wine is made using the traditional saignee method. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at a low temperature to retain the fresh, vibrant fruit flavours.
66% Syrah, 34% Mourvedre
