If you lovely Rosé you will love this! Whilst it can drunk young it tastes even better with some age! Reminiscent of a Blanc de Noirs, it is fresh, fruity and with it's acidity softened with MLF has a soft creamy note!

Product Name

A direct press Gamay Rosé that will knock you off your feet! Jérôme has been making wine since he was 20 years old and he's 47 now so has learnt a thing or two over the last quarter century!

It's the wisdom of age that has taught him that vinifying at low temperature help to keep the fresh fruit aromas and using MLF helps to soften the acidity and deliver a lovely creamy note.

Light red fruit on the nose leads to raspberry and strawberry in the mouth with a creamy note.

Light, delicious and just right for summer or winter.
