Sourced from the vines abutting the two streams that intersect on the estate, classic varieties including Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Tibouren comprise this fresh, red-fruited rosé.

Tasting Notes: From vines slightly lower on the estate's slopes, this cuvée presents crisp red fruits and a balance of acidity and extract that promotes freshness. Maceration of the wine's Cinsault and Grenache brings body and depth of flavor, while the direct-pressed Syrah brings complexity in the form of spice and white pepper.
