Côtes de Provence, France
The parcels for this rosé are always the same, but the combination is always different. In this vintage, the blend is Syrah 29%, Grenache 18%, Carignan 18%, Cinsault 17%, Vermentino 7%, Mourvèdre 6%, Clairette 5%. The wine was produced through direct pressing and partially destemmed. Certain varieties went through a cold maceration for 8 to 24 hours before being pressed. Cold clarification and natural fermentation and gravitational work in cellar.
“Corail” is the domaine’s rosé and it has classic Provençal characteristics. Coral color with a very expressive nose of sweet pea, pink grapefruit, white pepper. The palate is lively with notes of crushed wild raspberries. Fresh and dry, crisp and crushable.
Food pairing: smash a plate of bruschetta on lightly grilled sourdough bread with this beauty, burrata with preserved strawberries or let this be a cool French breeze against the heat of spicy salmon sushi
