It’s that time of year again, when the days might be getting longer but the mornings are just as dark and dank. At the time of writing Storms Ciara and Dennis have just wreaked havoc, bringing rain, wind and snow, so it is obviously the perfect moment to offer a ray of brightness in the form of our perennially optimistic Early Bird Rosé offer.
Across France 2019 was a very hot vintage, with virtually no rain during the growing season, resulting in crops which were significantly smaller than usual, the very high skin to juice ratio intensifying flavours and resulting in more deeply coloured wines. Skin contact for all these rosés is kept to a minimum but in a hot year, it is next to impossible to avoid additional colour leaching into the juice as the fruit is crushed, giving the 2019 wines a wonderfully intense, vibrant hue.
We are offering three different rosés this year, each very different from the other. Château Sainte Croix’s IGP Var is wonderfully light and fresh, a wine which can (and will) be quaffed in volume. GrandRosé, from further west in Provence, is rich and ripe enough to stand up to food, whilst barrel-fermented L’Exuberance from Clos Cantenac, in St Emilion, stands high above the others, with a richness and depth not normally found in rosé which allows it to age rather well too.
