Château La Sauvageonne La Villa Rosé 2017

Gérard Bertrand is one of the most outstanding winemakers in the South of France. A biodynamic pioneer, he owns numerous estates among the most prestigious crus of Languedoc-Roussillon. Formerly the IWC Red Winemaker of the Year and winner of Wine Enthusiast‘s European Winery of the Year, Gérard has been cited as the “King of the Languedoc” among critics. Acquired in November 2011, Château la Sauvageonne is located northwest of Montpellier. With a long winemaking history, this Château is a legendary site. The combination of its orientation, its situation on the Larzac terraces at 300 metres altitude and the exceptional volcanic terroir, produces stunning wines of unique character.

A blend of Grenache (65%), Mourvèdre (25%), Viognier (7%) and Vermentino (3%), Château La Sauvageonne La Villa Rosé is a beautifully stylish pale rosé. The bouquet offers up notes of crushed strawberries, sweet spice and floral notes of
violet and hawthorn. Powerful and generous, with a velvety texture and a revitalising freshness.

On encountering this formidable rosé, which took home a well-deserved Gold, impressed team leader Lionel Periner described a nose that was ‘open and complex, with ripe fruit and oak, while the palate is dry and full, with an oaky complexity and a fine buttery, nutty long finish’. The Royal Automobile Club’s Michael Fiducia found it to be a ‘fresh, approachable style, with jasmine, peach and blanched tomato skin, as well as a creamy, vanilla, toasted note’.
