 Our Wines - Rosé
Font-Sane Emotion d'un Soir Rosé 2015 (#10-37)

Primarily Grenache with some Syrah and Cinsault, this is an unusually full-bodied rose'!  The color alone hints at something special and this wine delivers.  Rather than a 'sit & sip' wine, it goes much better with food, e.g., cold-boiled shrimp with slices of avocado, maybe a vegetable quiche on the side . . . a cold roast beef salad . . . even a club sandwich!  This robust rosé will not disappoint.  

Grapes: Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault

Region: Rhone Valley Vineyard:  Domaine de Font Sane

Nuances Rosé 2014 (#58-6)

Production is quite small as this is an exceptional rosé. The best soils are chosen with Bandolais yields of less than 35 hl /ha. Natural yeasts, a good quality wine-­making temperature of 21/23°C (70-74F) is used to extract aromas of the grape variety. Wine is bottled in late April. This is a classic Pibarnon rosé that may be enjoyed this year and for years to come.

Grapes: Mourvèdre 100%

Region: Provence Vineyard:  Château de Pibarnon
Pibarnon Rosé '15 (#58-8)

The CINSAULT is pressed directly. It brings the fat and fruit. -The saignée method (drop of juice) and pressing is used on the MOURVÈDRE. It gives a good structure, freshness and complexity. The two varieties are blended before fermentation. Long fermentation (25/30 days) in stainless steel vats. Controlled temperature, but not too low: an average of 22 °C. Aged in vats for 6 months, to preserve the freshness of the aromas. Some notes of citrus, but also ripe fruits explode before revealing licorice, ever-present thanks to Mourvèdre. A mouth full of freshness and body, amplified by the sap and fruit, viscosity and spices.

Grapes: 65% Mourvèdre, 35% Cinsault

Region: Provence Vineyard:  Château de Pibarnon
