Winemaking Notes: 100% direct pressed wine ferments spontaneously in stainless-steel tanks and then racked, remaining on its fine lees until assemblage prior to bottling. The wine is aged for 4-6 months in stainless-steel tanks.
Tasting Notes: The rock-steady Soard brothers produced a remarkable Ventoux Rosé, with perk acidity and a sense of well-judged restraint that characterizes all the domaine’s wines. Fenouillet has been certi- fied organic since the 2012 vintage, a fact which shows in this rosé’s vibrancy and vividness of fruit.
