Ch d’Angles Classique Rosé
More assertive than a typical Provençal rosé and much drier than many others. A very expressive and structured rosé.
Made from a blend of Mourvèdre (80%), Cinsault (10%), Syrah (10%) grown on the hard limestone screes of the mountain La Clape. After total de-stemming the juice is gravity-fed into vats, and undergos a temperature-controlled fermentation and stirring of the fine lees in concrete vats over 3 months.
Grower and winemaker Eric Fabre follows sustainable practices (according to High Environmental Value Certification) for respect of the environment and complexity of the wine: organic composted amendment, crushed shoots, plowing, no insecticides, no weed killers.
Brilliant, “pink flamingo” colour. Intense and complex nose of white flowers and fruits, citrus fruits and also small fresh red berries aromas. Plentiful mouth with a long and complex aromatic composition balanced by a mineral freshness.
Food pairing: Will definitely match all kinds of summer dishes like salads and grills. Also excellent with Asian cuisine and red berries-based desserts.
Ageing potential: Enjoy fresh and fruity in the first 3 years. Ageing potential of 4 to 5 years.
