is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
Varieties: Cinsault, Syrah
At the foothill of the Larzac, the domaine lives up at 350 metre high, is located in a symbolic place where the wines are unique for their freshness and fineness in Languedoc.
Ten hectares (25 acres) of vines are planted on stone walled terraces known locally as 'clapas', nestling in the 350 metre (1150 ft) hillsides at the foot of the Larzac plateau. We care for the limestone scree covered land as naturally as possible using plant based infusions. We work the soil and pick the grapes by hand, carrying them in small open weave baskets to the winery where they are sorted and de-stemmed. Fermentation takes place in wooden conical casks. Half the wine is then matured in vats, the remainder in oak casks.
The vineyard's features, combined with the altitude, the deep limestone and clay soil and temperate climate make it a perfect place for great wines to thrive.
Ze Roze is a circumstance of wine. It likes to be drunk under a fig tree or an oak tree in the shade of a parasol. It is a feast of a wine from plantings of Syrah and Cinsault, stylish, cool, digestible and refreshing, alone or accompanied, it remains capable of withstanding a meal of a summer salad or grilled white meats. The freshness of our terroir is reinforced by the absence of malolactic fermentation.
