The creation of 946 rosé requires a precise winemaking based on a fine and delicate assembly of three bases of wine. – A wine from the heavier parts of the juice (lees) previously stored at low temperature (4°C), and then filtered. This base gives to the wine roundness in the mouth. – Another base comes from the alcoholic fermentation in half muid (500l) of new Austrian oak (Stockinger) which gives complexity. The last base comes from the fermentation between 14°C and 16°C in concrete tank to reveal aromas.
Appearance : Hints of pale apricot.
Nose : Intense nose with strong notes of peach. Subtle notes of pineapple and mango appear.
Palate : Strong and round wine in mouth. Aromas of banana and peach. Fine and elegant tannins.
To be served with scallops tartar, sea urchins from Méditerranée, bisque of crayfisyh or strawberry carpaccio.
