The Côtes du Rhône regional appellation extends over 124 miles from Vienne to Avignon and covers six departments. It is the second largest appellation in France in terms of volume. Thanks to variations in microclimates, the diversity of soil and varietals, the vineyards of Côtes du Rhône produce a vast range of wines capable of pleasing all palates. The rosé production is very tiny as it represents less than 10% of the total. The Louis Bernard Côtes du Rhône Rosé is a great quality wine.
The first phase of wine making is cold maceration for 24 hours in order to preserve the aromas and obtain the distinctive color. The juice for the rosé is then "bled" from the grapes. Blending of the different varieties takes place in December, followed by early bottling early to keep all the freshness and fruit notes.
Delicate aromas of red fruit with floral notes and undertones of almond and mild spices.
It is well rounded and full bodied with tempered acidity.
