V de Provence

A WHITE FLOWERS AND SUMMER FRUIT NOTES BOUQUET IN A BOX

Story

The wine
The domaine, which existes for a very long time, was bought by the Quiot Family in 2002. Marketing under the name Domaine de Verlaque had gradually been abandoned. We decided, in 2020, to give all its individuality to this splendid 30 hectare cultural unit by producing the V de Provence cuvee from Domaine de Verlaque.
The vintage
2020 is the Renaissance vintage for our Domaine de Verlaque.
Location
At the foot of the Mont Aurelien, in the plain, also bordered by the Sainte Victoire mountain in the north. This plain, located in the north-west of the Côtes de Provence Appellation has a very particular micro-climate, very extreme, which gives the wines character.
Terroir
Clay-limestone soils, with a coarse texture, resulting from the decomposition of the bedrock of the surrounding mountains.
Harvest start date
Mid-september 2020.
Vinification
Direct pressing without maceration in order to preserve a pale and soft rosé.
Ageing
The ageing is very short since the bottling is done in December, which allows consumers to have fresh Rosés to consume, from the beginning of the year following the harvest.
Varietals
Cinsault : 50%
Grenache noir : 50%

""Not convinced by the label but it's a lovely rippled, dimpled, hammered bottle, completely unique. A bit shy on the nose with some red berries and tomato leaves. On the palate, lovely salinity, chalkiness, weighty with ripe, opulent dark jammy fruit. Big surprise. Slightly silky, almost meaty chewiness on the finish but kept up with creamy and fresh red fruit. Quite good structure but a little short and clumsy acidity. Commended.""
