The côte Vermeille’s soil is made of schist rock with a thick soil layer. In this mediterranean climate, the vine has to develop some powerful roots to extract water and nutrients it needs. With only 5000 to 6000 stocks/hectare, the exposition to the sun and Tramontane, the vine produces healthy and concentrated fruits. The vineyard is organized by low dry-stone walls that draw terraces and gave the traditional architecture. Terraces and steep hills make impossible any mechanization and requires to work exclusively by hand.
Tasting & food pairing
The nose maries fruity and floral aromas that form a refined bouquet. The color is deep, the mouth is dynamic, ample, long and well-balanced. So Rosé des Roches is not a simple ‘summer wine’.
It can be enjoyed on its own thanks to the roundness but can also be matched with backed fishes, vegetables or white meats. It is a real ‘gastronomic rosé’.
