Les Giroflées

In 2004, « Les Giroflées » has been produced from vines that have stayed in very good sanitary condition until late october. The high potential (14,2% vol.) allowed us to create this semi-dry rosé (35 grams of residual sugar).

  • APPELLATION:
    - Soft rosé (semi-dry). French table wine (see info per vintage)
  • GRAPE VARIETY:
    - Pineau d’Aunis with a touch of Grolleau. Old vines.
    The wines are always produced from grapes dried by over-maturation.
  • SOIL (TERROIR):
    - Clayey and siliceous clay with flint on tuffeau (limestone). The soils with strong clays are favourable for reds.
  • VITICULTURE:
    - Ground works : ploughing, earthing-up and hoeing. No weed killers.
    - Very low yields (inferior to 10 hl/ha). Manual harvest.
  • VINIFICATION:
    - The vinification takes place in vats in low temperature cellars.
    - The final balance is the work of nature.
  • TASTING:
    - Slightly sparkling orange pink. Delicate nose of red soft fruits, of white flowers and sweet spices. The mouth is perfectly structured, and the sweetness is perfectly balanced with a little acidity. The body is very attractive with purity of expression. This is a lovely wine, which would be perfect with a dessert that wasn't too sweet.
  • SERVICE:
    - Goes with: aperitif, red fruits salad, light desserts.
    - Serve at 10-12°C.
