 Our Wines - Rosé
Cerdon de Bugey NV

The Gamay grapes are grown in the steep slopes of the mountainside, in an ideal position for best sun exposure.”Méthode Ancestrale”- a partial fermentation at low temperature in vats results in a wine with a low alcohol level. The wine, clarified by filtration, retains its yeasts in order to continue its natural fermentation in the bottle. This causes the mousse to form. After removal of the deposit, the bottles are finally sealed. 

Grapes: 100% Gamay

Region: Bugey Vineyard:  Earl Vucher G. & Fils
Franck Millet Rosé 2017 (#23-33)

From Limestone-Clay soil, this Sancerre Rosé is a blend of pressed and bled juice. The grapes pressed at harvest produce the pressed juice and the bled juice is the product of skin maceration. The must is then settled and low temperature fermentation begins. Light filtration and stainless steel tank aging.

Grape: Pinot Noir 100%

Region: Loire Valley Vineyard:  Domaine Franck Millet

Pibarnon Nuances Rosé 2015 (#58-14)

Production is quite small as this is an exceptional rosé. The best soils are chosen with Bandol yields of less than 35 hl /ha. Natural yeasts are used and a good quality wine-­making temperature of 21/23°C (70-74F) is used to extract aromas of the grape variety. Wine is bottled in late April. This is a classic Pibarnon rosé that may be enjoyed this year and for years to come.

Grapes: Mourvèdre 100%

Region: Provence Vineyard:  Château de Pibarnon
Pibarnon Rosé '17 (#58-18)

The Cinsault is pressed directly. It brings fat and fruit to the blend. The saignée method (drop of juice) and pressing is used on the Mourvèdre. It gives a good structure, freshness and complexity. The two varieties are blended before fermentation. Long fermentation (25/30 days) in stainless steel vats. Controlled temperature at an average of 22 °C. Aged in vats for 6 months to preserve the freshness of the aromas. Some notes of citrus but also ripe fruits explode before revealing licorice, ever-present thanks to Mourvèdre. A mouth full of freshness and body, amplified by the sap and fruit, viscosity and spices.

Grapes: 65% Mourvèdre, 35% Cinsault

Region: Provence Vineyard:  Château de Pibarnon
