Le Petit Carla Rosé
Vin de France
Works very well as an aperitif but also pairs with starters such as salads and cold cuts, along with grilled foods with Provence herbs and pan-fried or grilled vegetables.
Varietal range: This rosé wine is a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan.
Soil types: The vineyards are situated along the Mediterranean coastline around Béziers. They enjoy a hot, damp climate which promotes development of aroma in the grapes during the ripening phase, producing a range of wines with differing profiles.
Vineyard management: The utmost attention is paid to vineyard management and the health of the fruit. Two types of pruning are used – Cordon de Royat and goblet.
Winemaking: The grapes are harvested by machine then sorted. They go straight to press in a pneumatic press with short soaking (3 hours) in a protected atmosphere. Fermentation then lasts for 10 to 15 days at most.
Tasting notes: Intense, brilliant pinkish colour with purple tints. Fairly persistent, fresh, aromatic nose. Fresh, aromatic palate showing good length.
Drinking temperature: 12°C.
