 Our Wines - Rosé
Cerdon de Bugey NV

The Gamay grapes are grown in the steep slopes of the mountainside, in an ideal position for best sun exposure.”Méthode Ancestrale”- a partial fermentation at low temperature in vats results in a wine with a low alcohol level. The wine, clarified by filtration, retains its yeasts in order to continue its natural fermentation in the bottle. This causes the mousse to form. After removal of the deposit, the bottles are finally sealed. 

Grapes: 100% Gamay

Region: Cassis Vineyard:  Cassis Bodin
Font-Sane Emotion d'un Soir Rosé 2016 (#10-42)

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
Gueissard Bandol Rosé 2016 (#43-22)

Elegant, light pink with salmon glimmers.  The nose picks up expressive and complex tones of fresh aromas of citrus, mango, apricot notes.  The palate is fleshy, balanced, with aromas of exotic fruits and spices.

Grapes:Cinsault (40%), Mourvèdre (35%), Grenache (20%), Carignan (5%)

Region: Provence Vineyard:  Domaine Gueissard
Gueissard Cuvée G Rosé 2016 (#43-20)

Margüi Perle Rosé 2016 (#20-24)

Showing a pale salmon color, it will be at its best for the next 18 to 24 months along with grilled meats, as a very original aperitif or perfect alongside Asian or Latin American cuisine.

Mas des Brun Rosé 2016 (#67-1)

This vineyard is located in the Bandol appellation but it cannot gain AOP until the 5th leaf. The wine has been elaborated in opposition to usual standards for a rose. Harvested very early in the season to enhance natural acidity and low alcohol, these very young vines of Mourvedre and Cinsault have been farmed in harmony and in respect of Mother Nature. A natural pink color, minimum sulfur doses, indigenous yeasts naturally brought by wild flowers in the vineyard, malolactic fermentation and a very light filtration eventually make our first harvest of only 200 cases “Non-Conformist”.

Grapes:Mourvedre (67%), Cinsault (33%)

Region: Bandol Vineyard:  Mas des Brun
Mascaronne Quat'Saisons Rosé 2016 (#41-13)

Beautiful pale salmon color with glints of silver.  This rosé is highly expressive with notes of citrus and pink grapefruit followed by aromas of white peach.  The taste is full of citrus fruit notes and a beautiful maturity while retaining a subtle freshness.  Elegant and fruit-filled long finish.

Grapes: 45% Cinsault, 25% Grenache, 15% Mourvédre, 15% Syrah

Region: Provence Vineyard:  Château La Mascaronne

Pibarnon Nuances Rosé 2015 (#58-14)

Production is quite small as this is an exceptional rosé. The best soils are chosen with Bandol yields of less than 35 hl /ha. Natural yeasts are used and 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
