"It's delicately fragrant on the nose showing crunchy apple, nectarine and floral aromas with a touch of sweet strawberry. The palate displays elegant weight and smooth mouthfeel well complemented by juicy fruit flavours and bright acidity, offering fabulous drinking. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2020

"Bright, even, pale salmon-pink. The nose is elegant and fresh; the glass fills with nuances of fresh raspberries, cranberries, pomegranate, along with fresh herbs and delicate spices. Light-bodied, dry to taste, flavours of raspberries, pomegranate entwined with fresh green herbs and subtle white pepper. The flavours are harmonious and well-proportioned, dry to taste with fruit but not too fruity. Lively acidity balance carries lifting aromas flows to a refreshing finish. This is a dry, smooth-flowing rose with freshness and balance. Match with cured salmon and charcuterie over the next 2 years. A blend of Grenache and Cinsault, fermented to 12.5% alc. No MLF" Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, Aug 2020

Doted with lovely pale pink colour, Les Jamelles Clair de Rosé is perfectly balanced, fresh, lively and round, with floral and fruity aromas of raspberry and grenadine.

The grapes for this wine are sourced from diverse terroirs: those from the Herault Valley’s mid-slope vineyards, under the influence of the Mediterranean climate, yield rich, warm, sun-drenched wines; a little further to the south, the sandy alluvial soils around the Thau lagoon basin lend freshness and salinity; while further east, the calcareous clay soils in the environs of Narbonne, where the climate is dry and sunny, yield rich wines.

The grapes are pressed immediately after being harvested. The must is clarified using flotation in order to obtain very clear juice that is then vinified as for a white wine and fermented at low temperatures (15°C). There is no malolactic fermentation.

“Clair de Rose” embodies the quintessence of a Les Jamelles rosé, though, exceptionally, it is a blend of two grape varieties, Grenache and Cinsault. The result is a subtle wine that is well balanced: elegant and delectable, floral and fruity, fresh and round on the palate.

Food Pairing: Enjoy well chilled (8°C) as an aperitif, with salads, grilled meats, pizza, summer vegetables, or with Asian cuisine. Catherine Delaunay likes to serve it with prawn skewers marinated in ginger and coconut milk. Or try it with a simple slice of melon and prosciutto.
