Audace Rosé 2019

29.00

Description

A revered and highly sought-after rosé from Provence, Audace is distinguished by its exceptional purity and minerality.

A 50/50 blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre, this is night-harvested and drawn from the free-run juices, fermenting at low temperatures for around three weeks, with maturation in stainless steel and two months in oak barrels to round off.

Pale salmon pink with golden reflections, exotic notes of papaya and mango intermingle with raspberry, rose petals and violets on a powerful yet refined nose. The elegance and suppleness of the palate is what defines Audace — fruit, floral and savoury characters folded into a lithe, minerally texture, finely tuned acidity providing balance, and fine length on a high class finish.

Enjoy with meaty seafood like monkfish or lobster accompanied by mango salsa.

Producer: Château Pas Du Cerf

Pas du Cerf acquired its name in the 16th century when the King of France, François the 1st, visited the area for the marriage of his son, Henry, to Catherine of Medici, the locals impressed or perhaps bemused with the King's deer-hunting skills (pas du cerf meaning 'no deer'). By 1848, the first harvest of grapes was vinified in the house that remains, eight generations later, the home of the Gualtieri family.

The eighth generation comprises three sisters, Aurore, Diane and Marion Gualtieri, who are all involved in the family business. Nestled in the middle of a protected 700 hectare forest, the estate has around 80 hectares under vine which, since 2010, have been moving towards organic farming. Château Pas du Cerf is currently certified High Environmental Value level 3, the highest level awarded by the National Commission for Environmental Certification in France, and all vineyards will be certified organic by 2022.
