Vintage Notes: Gilles Gasq (owner) describes the 2016 vintage as powerful with great balance and finesse. Compared to the equally strong 2015 vintage, the 16’s for him have a greater balancing acidity, which delivers a dynamic freshness.
Wine Notes: Gilles Gasq vinifies his Côtes du Rhône Rosé from his organically certified vineyards situated on the prestigious Plan de Dieu near Trevaillan. The juice is 100% direct-press and–like all his wines at Manarine–100% organic. It is aged briefly in cement vats. The color is a silvery pink, with strawberry and vibrant grapefruit flavors. Juicy but firm, it finishes with lively fresh acidity.
