QEF rosé 2020

We are mainly a wine producer of AOC, but we have some plots, on each of our domains, in IGP Méditerrannée that we share with you with our "Quod Erat Faciendum" available in 3 colors.
"Quod Erat Faciendum" means: "What had to be done"... a little wink to simply share our know-how, in accessible and uninhibited wines.

Story

The story
Provence attracts you... its beauty, its landscapes. Here a simple Mediterranean Rosé that will take you in your memories or dreams of vacation.
The vintage
Capricious weather for the 2020 vintage, a spring alternation of cold and hot but the good summer weather and the Indian summer allowed a good harvest.
Location
The plots are located between the Sainte Victoire and the Aurélien mountains, a contrasting setting with a characterful atmosphere. The brightness is breathtaking and has also inspired Cézanne when he came to the domaine.
Terroir
The vineyards are located at the foot of the Sainte Victoire moutain and are on clay and stony alluvials soils.
In the vineyard
All of our domaines are identically cultivated, AOC or IGP plots, in accordance with the specifications.
Harvest start date

Vinification

""Pronounced pink. Lots of juicy fruit on the nose. Jammy fruit, raspberry boiled sweets. fresh acidity and a mineral finish. Not a complex wine, but very cheerful. Very friendly upfront fruit but the acidity dissipates quite quickly and by the finish this is left feeling a little flat and underwhelming. As expected from this producer, an eye-catching label that here opts for modernity and classy typographic minimalism. Commended.""
