This full, rich wine emphasizes ripe berry fruits rather than crispness. That makes for a wine that is warm, intensely fruity, soft of the palate and ready to drink now - 88 Points

Tasting Notes

Color: A light translucent pink with some yellow gold hues.

Nose: Delicate notes of cherry, cranberry and pomegranate. 

Taste: This is a dry rosé that has weight and structure on the palate. It is balanced by a freshness and tart red fruit notes like fresh strawberry.

Terroir

The Plateau (altitude 330 m), characterized by an impoverished, stony soil. This zone is reserved for the finest vintages, as its yield is limited.
Le Château (altitude 250 m), characterized by a very different type of soil, with much larger proportions of sand, a generally finer texture and less stones, producing zesty rosés. Its shallow, well-drained soil is ideal for the vines.
This mainly chalky terroir, perfect for growing numerous grape varieties, lends the wines their refreshing, mineral taste.
