Le Rose de Cassagnau, IGP Pays D'Oc, France, 2020 

Grapes:  Blend 70% Pinot Noir - 20% Cabernet Franc - 10% Grenache

Located in the low foothills of the Pyrenees, Jacques Abet's 30ha property, in the village of Pauligne, near Limoux (south of Carcassonne) in "Cathar country", is influenced by both the Mediterranean and Atlantic climates, making Cassagnau ideally suited to growing a huge range of grape varieties; some typically Mediterranean, some from Bordeaux and Burgundy, and some native to the region.

The grapes, carefully harvested in the cool of the morning, are pressed to extract a barely pink must. Cool fermented and aged in vat on the fine lees, the wine is bottled early to preserve its full freshness and vibrancy.

Its very light rose petals colour continues on the nose with floral notes, a touch of citrus and spices. The palate brings together the freshness of Cabernet Franc and a delicate flesh lifted by a stimulating mineral sensation. Then appear the classic Pinot Noir red berry fruits flavours. A delicious, elegant and feminine wine. What a pleasure to taste this wine with friends, served chilled, on a beautiful summer evening to accompany Mediterranean dishes, or quite simply, grilled meats.

To drink young, within the 2-3 years following its vintage.

A really lovely, light and delicate rose with bags of summer fruit flavours but ends with a real zesty finish.
