Maison Lorgeril L'Orangeraie Rosé 2019

Cabardès, Languedoc, South of France, FranceMaison Lorgeril is an independent, family-owned vineyard located on the grounds of the family’s stately home, Château de Pennautier, which was built in 1620 in Languedoc in the heart of Cabardés. With four centuries of history, Nicolas de Lorgeril’s family is one of the oldest winemaking families in France. They began their conversation to organic farming in 2019. This blend of cinsault, grenache, syrah, merlot in the saignée method, with the pale peach hue the result of a few hours skin contact. Savoury and dry, with wild strawberry, young raspberry, rose petals, subtle spice, on a delicate slip of a palate. Finishes refreshing and bright, ready for your poached prawns or spinach salads.Tasted: 11 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 15.00 private wine shops Producer: Maison LorgerilBlend: Cinsault - Grenache - Syrah - Merlot
