Verget du Sud Mediterranee Rosé 2015
This bottling comes from two limestone-rich vineyards in Apt, high in the Provençal hinterland, selected, managed and harvested specifically for the rosé. The wines were fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, on lees, for eight months, with a little saignée juice added for fruity depth. Both in Burgundy and in the south, 2015 is a sensational vintage for Jean-Marie Guffens, and this wine is fabulous value (as always!) It's a racy, mineral Provençal style with ripe berry and crushed, fresh herb notes, a deliciously chewy texture, and a long tangy close.
In a mixed or straight case: $24.69
