The Grenache is made using the ‘saignee’ method, whilst the Syrah is pressed. The grapes are picked by night. Alcoholic fermentation occurs very slowly and at low temperatures. The wines are aged on their lees for 3 months.
Pale pink hue. The nose delivers lifted, soft accents of red fruits reminiscent of raspberry. On the palate, freshness produces a satisfying and very mouth-watering wine. Balanced and fairly long, it offers instant gratification with an exuberance that accompanies but does not overpower the delicious fruit flavours.
The Rosé de Vaugelas can be enjoyed as an aperitif, and will sublimate a fish curry, a vegetable tagine or a fruit tart.
Ready to drink
The Mediterranean-type climate, which is typical throughout the appellation area, is marked by a significantly hot, dry season, mitigated by the effect of the landform. Due to the diversity and unique features of the different areas, major zones have been defined by their weather patterns and soil types.
There is a huge variety of soil types but hard limestone in the garrigue and schist soils are the most widespread. There is also gravel washed down by Languedoc’s rivers.
