IGP Alpes de Haute Provence: Chateau de Rousset Les Bambines 2016


From


per bottle

Under a robe of lychee, this ripe rose releases elegantly intense notes of melon and cassis, before moving towards Muscat scents.

Good density on the palate is set by a youthful vivacity and a pleasant fruitiness.

Chateau de Rousset

Chateau de Rousset from Haute-Provence in the recently formed AOC of Pierrevert has wines that are very distinct in character.

What makes their wines so unique is that they have both Rhone and Provençal qualities; The reds made with Syrah and Grenache have an underlying power of depth as in many Rhone wines, yet they still have a distinct elegant lighter fresh fruit element as noticed in High altitude Provençal wines.
