ONE OF TWENTY "BEST SELLERS" FROM FAMED VIRGINIA IMPORTER FRAN KYSELA IMPORT BOOK!! OH BY THE WAY DID I MENTION A "BEST BUY" HERE AT THE LAWC AS WELL?

80% Grenache, 10% Carignan, 10% Cinsault.


"Pale orange-pink. Fresh red berry and floral qualities on the perfumed nose and in the mouth. Juicy, focused and seamless in texture, showing solid closing thrust and a late touch of white pepper that adds final, spicy bite." (VM)

"Light pink-hued, the 2018 Vin Gris Rose from the Corbières has a juicy, fruity bouquet of ripe strawberries, violets, and white peach to go with a clean, balanced, deliciously gulpable style on the palate. It’s well done and I suspect a good value." (JD)

Winery Notes:
They have re-learned to prune, plough, check yields, sort, select, with a permanent focus on the respect of the environment. All the grapes are harvested by hand. In the cellar, vats hygiene, temperature control, ultra-modern pressing contribute to a better expression of the terroir.
