2019 VDF 'Les Croses'Regular price $88.00
A rosé made from 80% Mourvèdre, 10% Carignan and 10% Syrah.
Beautiful colour that is more like a light red than a rosé, reminiscent of Poulsard perhaps. On opening there is a reduction which is not imposing, but is definitely present. A decant is recommended to allow this to subside. Smells like grapefruit, raspberries and macerated strawberries. Very cool to smell, with additional notes of watermelon.
Brothers Charles and Guillaume Soulier, farm 10ha of vineyards around the tiny village of Saint-Hilaire-d’Olizhan. The village sits in the Gard department in Southern France, about half an hour west of Avignon. They took the reins from their father in 2014, and made their first wine in 2015. They farm mainly Grenache, Syrah and some Carignan, but have also planted forgotten local varieties such as Counoise, Terret Noir and Picardin.
