Bastide Pic Saint Loup Rose (750ml)
Francois Fourel was born in Montpellier and has always been drawn to the Pic Saint Loup area. The region has unique terroir, where the climate is different from anywhere else in Languedoc. Here, the soils give the wines their refreshing, mineral characteristics. Fourel works with the grapes on this land to draw out a freshness and fruitiness that gives his wines a wonderful balance.
This is a blend of low yielding Grenache (80%) and Syrah (20%) from Pic Saint Loup in the Côteaux du Languedoc appellation. It is a pressed rose, very pale pink, with a round palate from very ripe Grenache grapes and a liveliness from the Syrah. The finish is persistent and recalls citrus fruits.
