Le Puy, “Rose-Marie”, Vin de France Rosé
This 100% Merlot wine is obtained by running off juice from one of the vats during the fermentation process, a practice known as “la saignée”. The juice is then fermented in barrells for 6-10 months, with no added substances. The rosé is then bottled without filtering and without sulfites, leaving us with a perfectly natural wine. The nose is fresh and floral, with red fruit aromas alongside notes of peonies and white flowers. On the palate Rose-Marie is light and playful, with tannins so light they are barely detectable. only 200 cases produced.
