WINES FR FRANCE BORDEAUX ROSE 75CL
The vineyards of Domaine Sainte Rose cover a total of 48 hectares, with planted vineyards amounting to 33 hectares. They spread from the clay/limestone soils found along the banks of the River Thongue up onto the gravelly schist soils of the plateau. Flavours of the Garrigue such as aromatic thyme with jammy, red fruit and spicy, black pepper, make this a wine of enormous character. It is warm and complex on the nose, rich and ripe on the palate. Superb structure and length allows cellaring for another couple of years but enjoy now with pepper steak.
Made from a blend of fruit harvested from four Savigny vineyards: Les Lavieres, Les Narbontons, Les Vergelesses and La Dominode. Each vineyard's wine is made individually, before being matured in 20% new French oak, then blended to perfection before bottling. Typical of Savigny, this wine is heady and aromatic, with notes of rose petals and beetroot giving complexity to the core of redcurrant fruit. The palate is more robust with savoury, fine-grained tannins. Delicious with cold meat salads or creamy French cheeses.
