Château Romassan Bandol Rosé

2005

Bandol

Château Romassan is located in the Bandol appellation and lies at the foot of the village of Le Castellet. The soil has poor fertility, but is off set by the large amount of stone, in particular lime and sand stone. The winery is located on 148 acres, which are fully devoted to wine production.

Winemaking

The following grapes are used in making this rosé :
• Mourvèdre, a local variety which gives the wine its round, robust quality
• Cinsault for its fresh, silky elegance
• Grenache to round off the wine and give it body, strength and bouquet

The grapes are all hand picked and go through a stringent selective grape sorting, followed by an extremely delicate pressing process. Fermentation is done in thermo-regulated vats followed by ageing in oak casks for 6 – 8 months.

Tasting Notes

This rosé has a bouquet of aromatic fruits and spices, apricot and grapefruit pulp. An outstanding alliance with scallops, salmon marinated in dill, sweet and sour pork. It is best served at 50-54 degrees Fahrenheit.
