Légende des Toques, AOC Côtes du Rhône, Rosé, 2018

Presentation

The wine
Good food and wine are essential parts of the the much-envied French lifestyle. Our « Légende des Toques » Côtes du Rhône is based on the experience of several generations of artisan winegrowers and reflects the expertise of our cellarmaster and that of famous chefs. Every vintage, these chefs are invited to take part in blending wines from various terroirs and grape varieties to make a delicious, polished, elegant wine typical of the Rhone Valley.
Terroir
The terroirs that produce our Côtes-du-Rhône consist mainly of limestone soil with clay subsoil, which accounts for the wine’s rich character.
Vinification
Our rosé Côtes-du-Rhône is made according to a set of strict criteria. The grapes are entirely destemmed and lightly crushed. Everything is done to obtain clear, aromatic juice that reflects the terroir. The must is naturally decanted from its lees at a temperature of 12°C, then cold fermented.
Maturing
The wine is aged on the lees for 3 months, then bottled in spring to preserve maximum freshness.
Varietals
Carignan
Cinsault
Grenache noir
Syrah
