Syrah, Saignée, Grenache, with a hint of Mourvèdre

"Brilliant orange-pink. Aromas and flavors of ripe red berries and pungent flowers, joined by a spicy nuance as the wine opens up. Shows good depth and a chewy quality to the warm, broad finish, which leaves a suggestion of jammy red fruit behind." (VM)

"Hints of earth and dried herb are juxtaposed by juicy, concentrated dried cherry and strawberry in this bold blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. The savory garrigue tones partner particularly well with fowl or pork dishes and this should hold up well as a year-round rosé. -Anna Lee C. Iijima" (WE)

Winery Notes:
A fruity and fresh gourmet wine
The ‘Galets’ are reminiscent of our terroir of rounded stones known as ‘grès’. Sculpted by the moraine of the Rhône glacier in the Quaternary Period, they characterise the Costières de Nîmes in the south of the Rhône Valley. This cuvee comes in all three colours; their robes resemble the shades of our white stones (Galets Dorés), pink stones (Galets Rosés) and red stones (Galets Rouges). The minerality contributes to the balance of the wine.

Galets Rosés is a gourmet rosé with a beautiful aromatic complexity. Fruity and mineral, it unites elegance and freshness.
