IGP Pays d’Hérault
PRESENTATION AND TERROIR
6 hectares of old Cinsault vines on our beautiful sandstone sites. The vines come from field selections conducted in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region at the start of the 1960s.
WINEMAKING AND AGEING
For the Rosé Fruit Défendu, the Cinsault grapes are destemmed and transferred to tanks for short soaking on the skins. We only use the free-run juices – no press juices – which are settled and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Temperature control is not too strict because an old varietal like this one would not appreciate high-tech winemaking! All the grapes are picked by hand.
Shows equally well as an aperitif or with Mediterranean vegetables grilled over a wood fire
