Description

"An instantly appealing rosé, the bouquet shows watermelon, fresh strawberry and stone fruit characters with a lovely accent of white floral. The palate is juicy and refreshing, wonderfully supported by excellent fruit purity and vibrancy, finishing delightfully long and lively. A joyfully delicious wine. At its best: now to 2019" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2018

"Medium coral pink. Pinkly juicy and candied rhubarb and lime jelly. Cancan dancing exuberance, strawberries and lemon verbena. Rather delicious" Jancis Robinson, Master of Wine

Exquisitely pale pink of great brilliance in the glass. The nose is floral, with notes of aniseed, rose and white blossom. Succulent, well-balanced, fruity and fresh at the same time, it reveals notes of citrus but also white peach, apricot and a touch of almond and mint. A beautifully long finish confirms this as a structured rosé that is not only excellent for drinking immediately, but one that will maintain all its qualities for the next two to three years.

Founded in 1995, Calmel & Joseph is a maison de négoce specializing in Languedoc-Roussillon wines from private wineries from across the region. Convinced of the extraordinary potential of this region, oenologist, Laurent Calmel, and Jerome Joseph work together on the vinification, blending and ageing of wines with the common purpose of demonstrating the little known yet unique quality of these Mediterranean terroirs. The Villa Blanche range is a total find and produces some of the best value, great tasting European wines we deal with.
