2017 Cheval Gris de Gris Rose Chateau L'Ermitage Carmague France


The Carmargue is the forgotten spit of land at the bottom of the Rhone, and apart from forming one of the largest wetlands nature reserves in Europe, produces this delicious, pale and versatile rose. Made from predominantly pale-skinned Grenache Gris from 10 to 20 year-old vines, traditional southern 'pressurage direct' is used to create a very pale rose; grapes are pressed slowly and rather than a short maceration with skins as is usual in rose, the juice is run-off without time in contact with the skins. Delicate and mineral with subtle notes of fleshy peach.
This is also available in funsize (magnum) bottles - which seem very sensible when you see how quickly it disappears!
