Fred and Alex Chaudière teamed up with sommelier Olivier Poussier & enologist Emmanuel Gagnepain to create this unique and age-worthy rosé. Inspired by the wines of Provence and in particular, Bandol, Quintessence Rosé is based on 70% direct press Mourvèdre with 20% saigné Cinsault, and 10% Clairette. Each variety is fermented and aged separately before the final blend is selected. The gradual pressing of the Mourvèdre and the skin contact of the Cinsault provide structure, light tannins, and an herbal edge to this delicate peach and cherry-flavored wine. Truly a gastronomic rosé for those seeking a less ephemeral and more substantial pink wine.
