Domaine du Jas d'Esclans 2016, Côtes de Provence Rosé AC, France (Half Bottle)

A Provençal rosé in a half bottle size of 37.5 cl. This delicate French Rose is elegant yet restrained, very good fruit profile. It comes from the very top drawer, made in a serious, thought provoking style.

Soft and multi-layered with notes of crushed strawberries - It has established itself as our top selling rosé, the pink of a very decent bunch, lighter, cherry tinged, and sophisticated.

Food match: Spicy Asian dishes, grilled fish, simply on its own as an aperifit

Climate:

After a rainy winter, replenishing mostly the water reserves of the soil, spring was moderately watered and the summer incredibly hot and dry. The vines, although they have suffered from heat and water stress, produced a very good quality grape harvest in normal quantities.

Soil:

A complex soil with clay and sandstone coloured deep red by the iron oxide, refreshed by the salt air of the Mediterranean Sea. The soil is very well drained which improves the grapes quality.

Harvest:

We wait that the grapes reach their maturity, and then we make the harvest early in the morning to keep the best temperature. We also have a cooling machine to refresh the grapes arriving in the cellar when the outside temperature is too hot so we keep the flavour inside the fruits and the quality is conserved.

Vinification:

The grapes are in concrete tanks for a brief maceration during few hours. They are being pressed after the maceration, then clarified and finally fermented. The temperature is controlled at all the different stages. (Around 12°C).
