Domaine Montrose has become a benchmark in the production of Languedoc rosé wines. This bottling of Montrose Rosé is the emblematic wine of the Coste family.
Winemaking Notes: Each grape variety and each terroir are vinified separately. Grapes are harvested at night to preserve their freshness. They are destemmed and macerate for a short time. Fermentation temperature is maintained between 59 degrees Fahrenheit and 64 degrees Fahrenheit to retain fruit aromas. After fermentation, the resulting wines from the different terroirs and grape varieties are blended and aged in stainless steel vats.
Tasting Notes: This wine exhibits red berries and citrus flavors on the nose and palate. It is an elegant rosé combining roundness and freshness. Enjoy the Montrose Rosé chilled on its own or paired with grilled fish, grilled meat, and salads.
Farming Notes: Domaine Montrose is certified HVE 3 (Haute Valeur Environnementale level 3), which is the highest level of France's Environmental Value certification. It is a result of their efforts towards virtuous agriculture: planting 2,000 trees to preserve biodiversity, planting vineyard ground cover, pheromone dispensers, manual weeding, non-irrigated vines, etc. This certification complements their existing carbon neutral approach: to limit their impact on the planet, the Coste family has reduced their CO2 emissions to a minimum. They offset the rest by financing ecological initiatives.
