Medium bodied, dry rose. Ripe opulent red fruits with fresh balancing acidity.
Tasting Notes: Ô de Rosé is made as an ode to the Languedoc terroir. The vineyards are backed by the Massif Central, with breath taking views of the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean. The aromas of the local garrigue are evident on the nose; lavender and a hint of rosemary. The palate is elegant and fresh with notes of lychee, summer fruits and rosehips. Certified sustainable.
The 2020 vintage has been awarded 94/100 points by Elisabeth Gabay, Master of Wine and featured in The Buyer's Guide to Rosés of Southern France.
94/100 was the highest score awarded and was only 1 of 4 wines to receive the 'Outstanding' accolade score. This is very high praise indeed. It is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Viognier.
"Pale salmon pink. Mute nose. Beautiful silky red fruit. Floral, intense redcurrants, cranberries and a hint of wild strawberries - loads of fruit balancing the acidity. Love the almost austere structure and ripe fruit opulence. Slightly peachy. Intensely perfumed citrus, oranges. Just layer after layer of beautifully extracted fruit, slight chalkiness, hints almost of dried fruit and oloroso sherry in the structure. Absolutely gorgeous. Salty, briny, brilliantly ripe fruit. Absolutely out-of-this-world brilliant wine, although it will not please those looking for a simple fruit bomb. Outstanding." by Elisabeth Gabay MW
