La Loupe Carignan Rosé 2020
£8.95 per bottle
Salmon pink in colour, this rose has a lovely nose of summer fruits and blossom. The palate is crisp and clean with a good citric acidity and flavours of strawberry, raspberry and red cherry with subtle floral hints of rose and blossom. A perfect summer wine, easy-drinking and very fresh.
Drinks beautifully as an aperitif. Serve alongside summer salads and prawn risotto.
The Pays d`Oc is a hot, dry, hilly region of contrasting soil types adjoining the Mediterranean coast. It is perfectly adapted to the cultivation of the vine, which by origin is a Mediterranean plant. The hills surrounding the city of Carcassonne are the source for this wine, where the limestone serves to keep the roots relatively cool, thus providing a freshness that is often missing in southern French wines.
Maison Maurel Vedeau was created from the partnership of two experienced viticulturists and winemakers, Stephane Vedeau and Alain Maurel. Now under the ownership of Bonfils, the winemaking expertise and skilled viticultural disipline is maintained from the winery and estate vineyards at La Baume. The range of varietal and generic Languedoc wines are immaculate; immediately flattering yet true to their terroir. They benefit from mature vineyards including Chardonnay and Merlot.
