The 2020 vintage
The 2020 season began in spring with regular rainfalls until mid-July, with a final rainfall of 17 mm.
Until the beginning of August, the water stress remained moderate. With the summer heat, the soils of the plateau as well as the hillside (where our Rolle and Syrah grow) became relatively tense.
Yet, the temperature variations between the cool nights and hot days helped reach a well-balanced acidity.
The seasonality favoured a very active ripening leading to a harvest taking place a week earlier than in 2019. The wines are mature and well-balanced.
Traditional, in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, after a delicate pneumatic pressing.
Several months on fine lees in stainless steel vats, preserving the wine’s aromatic freshness..
A pale and delicate pink. Notes of small wild berries mingle on the nose with a hint of juniper. This spicy touch supports the vivacity of the palate reminiscent of exotic citrus fruits. The wine is harmonious, clean and refreshing.
Full of charm, #LOU rosé is particularly enjoyable on its own or with Asian cuisine: Chinese jiaozi stuffed with pork or shrimps, steamed dim sum or Thaistyle fried noodles.
