Note

This mealtime rosé arrives to us from the South of France and was made with the excellent 2013 Languedoc vintage — an exception in France for that vintage. It is gorged with sunshine and was created with one goal in mind: creating vibrant harmonies with summertime foods. This wine is halfway between an appéritif rosé (sometimes called a poolside rosé!) and a more structured rosé designed for gastronomical purposes; it truly represents the best of both worlds. This more than aromatic wine is complex and sophisticated, yet ample, textured and with a mature mouth that remains fresh and utterly pleasing to drink. It is perfectly structured to brilliantly pair with most summer dishes.

Origin / Terroir / Vinification

Originates mostly from the Pic Saint-Loup AOC, with a portion originating from bordering non-AOC zones. The Clos des Augustins domain, belonging to the Mezy family, respects the principles of biodynamy. The concept behind the creation of this bled rosé was to create a gastronomical wine that would pair perfectly with the aromatic ingredients of summer cuisine, yet also age for up to two years to gain in complexity and texture that will allow it to pair with the warmer fall and winter cuisine.
