This succulent rose has been here at The Wine Country as long, if not longer than I have and the quality has never dipped, in over 20 years. Grenache Gris, Grenache Noir, Carignan, Cinsault and Mourvedre make up the blend here, each variety lending just enough to the wine to make it interesting but not terribly complex. Like biting into a nice ripe piece of fruit but one that has a splash of lemon juice. Fairly broad in the mouth but with a finish so clean you have to go back for more.

Grapes are grown in Corbieres appellation of the Languedoc region. The grapes for this wine are 50% Grenache Gris, 40% Grenache Noir, and 10% Cinsault and Mour. Soils are silica, clay, and limestone with gravels and large galets. The winemaker is Bruno Labourcarie. This particular rose has become a benchmark for Corbieres rose. All grapes are hand-harvested. The wine was made using the saignee method where lightly macerated wine is bled off and vinified separately from the remainder. That remaining portion is vinified as a red wine. For the rose wine, malolactic conversion is blocked, and the wine rests one month before bottling.
