Description

  • Dry style
  • Watermelon
  • Raspberry & strawberry
  • Juicy acidity

"This is immensely charming and fabulously expressed, showing watermelon, orange peel, apple and subtle flinty notes on the nose. The palate displays lovely focus and linear mouthfeel, combined with fine texture and juicy acidity, making it delicate yet deliciously appealing. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Lovely salmon pink in the glass. The nose displays delicious aromas of fresh raspberry and strawberries, with hints of pepper. The juicy and fresh first impression is balanced by a rich texture and good length.

Produced by the highly acclaimed LGI wines, awarded Best French Still Wine Producer at Berliner Wein Trophy in 2017, 2018 and 2019! Originally the brainchild of Alain Grignon, who had a vision of making affordable, classic French wines designed specifically for the international market. Now under the supervision of oenologist Xavier Roger.

The Combe Rocher (literally ‘rocky valley’) range is one of pure authenticity crafted from carefully selected terroirs with rocky soils between the Montagne Noire (Black Mountain range) over four departments along the Languedoc-Roussillon. This is a perfect location, with South facing slopes and hot sunny days to fully ripen the grapes. Here, the northern mountains of the Pyrenees and the Cevennes embrace the vineyards of the Pays d’Oc like an amphitheatre.

This delicious Rosé wine was born in the Languedoc from a small village in the foothills where making Rosé wine is a longstanding way of life. Here, Grenache grapes benefit from the Mediterranean climate to reach optimum ripeness. The grapes are harvested at night when the temperature is cool in order to prevent oxidation and preserve freshness in the wine. As they arrive at the cellar, the grapes are immediately pressed. The pressed juice is put in a CO2 saturated atmosphere to avoid any oxidation. Juices are drawn from the tanks and left to ferment for 15 days at 13-15°C in stainless steel tanks. Fine lees ageing for 4 months before bottling.

Food Pairing: Enjoy this wine chilled, as an aperitif or with various tapas, cold cuts, hummus, Caesar salad.
