Clos Roussely ‘Irréductible’ Rosé 2018


Character: Unique rosé from old-vine Pineau d’Aunis, substantial but refreshing. Delicate nose of red fruit, white pepper and earth. On the palette it is plump and concentrated, yet light and airy at the same time. Lingering mineral-tinged and peppery finish. Most of our staff’s favourite rosé!

VinificationVery old vines (82 year-old) with very low yields (15 hl/ha) on clay-silex over limestone soils. Organic farming, horse-plowed soils, harvest by hand. Natural fermentation without additives, no blocked malolactic. Bottled in spring, filtered but unfined, with a touch of added SO2 (only at bottling).
