Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2018)90 pts

The 2018 IGP Cotes de Thongue Rose 1701 is pale in hue, but don't let that deceive you; this is a fairly weighty rosé, with a touch of oak influence. A blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Roussanne, the fruit is melon-y and subdued, with just enough citrus to balance out in the end.

Vinification Notes

Picking grapes by mechanical harvester and destemming. Skin contact follows by a direct press “rosé de saignée”. Cold settling of the juice and fermentation under temperature control (15° to 18°). Blending of the wines after fermentation. Aging in tank. Bottled at the end of the winter and during spring time.
