Description

Part of what makes this rosé so special is the fact that the fruit comes from Caillou's "Côtes du Rhône" walled vineyards which are actually within the Châteauneuf-du-Pape zone yet are not technically part of the appellation. A blend of 85% Counoise and 15% Mourvèdre, this very light pale pink is made without the Grenache one typically finds in rosés from the south of France and as a result, doesn't feel as fruity as one would expect from the Rhône Valley. Rather, it has a heightened lightness, vibrancy and lift. The nose has a pretty lavender garrigue note and fruit aromas more tropical in tone than red fruited with scents of guava, mango and a touch of white nectarine. However, flavors on the light-bodied palate do tend toward a light strawberry, red berry essence yet still have a tropical and stone fruit edge. The finish is perfectly dry, crisp and delightful. We recommend you stock up on this now as we were only able to get a limited quantity so when it's gone, it's gone!
