Origin

If Merlot is a grape well known for its contribution to the development of great red wines, it also allows to create fresh and fruity rosé wines.. The particular character of this wine is derived from its region of origin, the Languedoc, whose climate is predominantly Mediterranean with very hot, dry summers and mild autumns, winters and springs. The merlot grape variety is particularly well suited to this climate and the region’s terroir.

Vinification

100% merlot.
Once the harvest is brought in, every effort is made to prevent oxydation of the musts as they undergo direct pressing. The wines are vinified at low temperature, depending on the yeast used. Once fermentation is completed, we age the wine on the gross lees according to the potential of each vat. Malolactic fermenation is systematically prevented in order to retain as much freshness and tension in the wines.
