A subtle balance between structure and finesse, this wine is a perfect illustration of the precision required to make a rosé, the rigorous process that celebrates the flesh of the fruit and the very heart of the grape... The wine is a reflection of the complexity of its limestone hillsides and arid soil; austerity bathed in dazzling sunshine.
Rosé Cœur de Grain from the Château de Selle combines four grape varieties from the Côtes de Provence appellation including Grenache (over half) for the delicate colour and full-bodied texture. In lesser quantities, Cabernet Sauvignon - perfect for limestone soils - lends structure with a hint of spice, Cinsault offers softness and Syrah fruitiness.
This pale pink wine with golden tints releases fragrances of citrus fruit and orchard flowers enveloped in spice. On the palate, the immediate effect is elegant and open, developing subtle aromas with a lemony edge before a sweet finish of appealing length.
Wine EnthusiastPale in color, this ripe wine is beautifully balanced. It does have rich fruit, raspberries and wild strawberries. It also has a fine texture with plenty of acidity as well as a touch of pepper. The wine could age a further few months, so drink at the end of 2017.
