Grapes: 100% Cinsault
Style: Delicate & Fragrant
Country of Origin: France, Languedoc
A little gem from a little village called Saint Georges d’Orques in the south of France,
8km inland from Montpellier, we find Laurent Icard at the liltingly-named Domaine de L’Olibet.
This rosé was made in the press, and has deliberately been kept on its fine lees to nourish the wine over the winter and spring. The result is a wine of fragrance and ‘delicatesse’.
Delicate, sweet spice aromas lead onto a palate which is immediately soft, vinous and round with abundant ripe fruit, lifted by a natural zing and finishing with a characterful texture and richness.
The perfect summer lunch wine; pair with roasted vegetable tart or poached trout salad.
