Tasting

Amoureuse 2020 reveals a seductive light pink color. On the nose, it offers notes of elderflower and raspberry candy. On the palate, the texture is silky and exhales aromas of grapefruit and redcurrant enhanced by a note of minerality. A beautiful balance for this gastronomic rosé !

Food & wine pairings

The harvest began in the 3rd week of August and took place in optimal conditions with a beautiful maturity and an excellent sanitary state.

Grape varieties

63% Grenache, 31% Syrah, 6% Rolle

Terroir

The parcels from which the grapes for this cuvée are produced come primarily from clay-rich soils, with the exception of a plot of Grenache, with a richer profile, coming from a pebble-rich hillside vineyard.

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested starting at 3am and until early morning while the temperatures were still cool, and pressed directly upon arriving in the winery. Racking-off of the must after a 48h static settling at 15°C (59°F). A long fermentation took place over 25 days in closed cement vats at 16°C – 18°C (60°F – 64°F). At the end of the alcoholic fermentation the wine was racked off and left to settle naturally in the autumnal coolness of the cellar.
