The Grenache and Cinsault come from different vineyards within the Languedoc and Roussillon. Because of this, the specific properties of these vineyards are reflected in the wine. The climate is sunny, coolness and rain are present due to the proximity of the Cevennes and the Pyrenees. The grapes grow partly on calcareous soil and partly on clay and pebbles between 150 and 200 meters in height, this ensures coolness during the nights, and therefore freshness in the wine.

Well of Wine 2017, Grenache Rose, Pays d'Oc
'Discovered after a rigorous search, always coming from a fair source.' Thus the message on the bottle from Well of Wine.From this source, another beautiful, transparent-looking look-through rose was used this year, entirely in accordance with the current beauty ideal. The wine itself derives in timid strawberries, subdued cherries, small berry acids and southern herb. Very well in order.

Better summer wine than rose? Onno Kleyn does not think so. The popular pale rose's are even the best of both worlds.

Another winning house wine from the new partnership of wine stores Well of Wine. Comes from the Languedoc, where, contrary to what may have been thought, there is no such thing as a pink tradition. Pure grenache makes for a particularly complete wine: sophisticated fruit, no trace of sweets (in the other rose's today also not, we do not like that), but sincere strings of raspberry and even roses. Solid and yet deliciously dazed. Click here for the entire article.
