Alain Brumont has always been passionate about Gascony; for him it represents an exceptional reserve of micro-terroirs.
Tannat-Syrah-Merlot: three big complementary grape varieties for an unusual, high-spirited rose.
Velvet and satin from the Merlot, energy and liveliness from the Tannat, and raspberries and redcurrants from the Syrah make this a rather special, seductive, very moreish rosé.
A lovely expression of a festive, harmonious Gascony.
Tannat, Syrah, Merlot
40 year-old vines
Clay-limestone hills located in Ténarèze, soil of crushed stones and fine clay known as Peyrusquets
Vinification and aging
The grapes are harvested at the beginning of the ripening stage. Very slow pressing.
Settling at 0°C.
Vinification in stainless steel tanks at low temperature for maximum fruitiness.
Maturing in stainless steel vats (6 months) on fine lees to gain body and volume
A real gastronomic rosé; rose petal colour and a surprising generosity and fullness on the attack: well-rounded with lots of ripe fruit.
Very fresh finish with lovely mouthfeel
Food and wine pairing
This Gascon rosé can be enjoyed as an aperitif, or can accompany prepared and cured meats, red fruit desserts, or a rich chocolate cake
