  • Introduction

    • Cuvée des Commandeurs bottles the essence of quality fruit, seeking to evoke pleasure and delight the senses. This accessible rosé was crafted to provide thirst-quenching freshness with vibrant fruitiness, without sacrificing elegance and complexity.

  • Vineyard Profile

    • Sourced from the younger vines of the estate – with some fruit from the neighboring grape growers through long term contracts.

    • Soil: Clay and limestone from inland valleys, associated with some schist plots
  • Vinification

    • Harvested at night to preserve the acidity and in double floor boxes to prevent any early maceration and coloration of the juice. The fruit is directly destemmed and pressed on arrival in the cellar. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.

    • Aging: A few months of aging in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling
  • Technical Information

    • Varietal Composition: 40% Grenache, 35% Cinsault, 15% Syrah, 10% Rolle
  • Tasting Notes

    • Its rosy appearance is delicate in color and an expressive nose lends charm to this blend. A palate dominated by wild berries: gooseberry and raspberry that reveal themselves in a crisp, silky mouthfeel enhanced with a touch of minerality.

    • Serving Suggestions: Enjoy the liveliness of this wine with a taste of salmon, scallops or sea bass sushi
