The records of winemaking go back to 1550. In 1970 it was purchased by the Durand and Valentin families. This property is now viewed as one of the leading estates of Pic Saint Loup which is considered by many to be the top wine district in the Languedoc. This rosé is stunning and brimming with fruit. It has a very light reddish pink color and a gorgeous perfume hinting of watermelon and cherry with floral nuances. Rounded and lush with a myriad of fruit flavors suggesting watermelon, cherry, and raspberry the wine is very fruit forward and really delicious. It is very easy to drink – one glass leads to another. And, that is a very good thing. $18.’

Larry Mawby: ‘Regent and Marechal Foch grapes that are hand picked, crushed, fermented on the skins, and carefully pressed.

The wine is then filtered, dosaged, and bottled.’ My notes: Here’s the long-lost ‘sparkling burgundy’ back on my lips. Yes, a dry red sparkling wine that works.
