Rameau d'Or Cotes de Provence Rosé 2021
Harvest started at the end of August and described as being “historically low” (like the rest of France, Provence was impacted by the frost). Despite 2021 having been a particularly difficult year, the health and quality of the crop was very high. Compared to the 2020 vintage, the berries have a lower sugar content, with higher acidity: the perfect combination for producing fresh and elegant rosés. The higher acidity, linked with a lower PH, gives a slightly more intense colour to the wine. In addition, the Carignan and Syrah give darker shades to the wine.
Pale pink with light purple hues. On the nose, delicate with notes of red berries and pomegranate. The palate is refreshing with a lovely density, laden with white peach, rose petals and zest. The finish offers hints of spices and mouthwatering watermelon. Striking a delicate balance between fruit weight, phenolic grip and lip-smacking mineral acidity - this is the Provence we know and love - très beau.
