The distinguished elegance, fullness and lovely taut character of the Chateau Romassan Rose are the result of meticulous vine tending and winemaking. Each plot is worked in accordance with its intrinsic qualities but the vines all grow in typical Bandol terroirs: arid soil (limestone, sandstone and sandy marl) and exceptionally dry, sunny weather.
These characteristics ensure that Mourvedre, the major grape in this blend, fulfills its potential and provides solidity, structure and a great capacity for ageing.
It is complemented by the full-bodied texture of Grenache, the softness of Cinsault and, for its small contribution, the fruity roundness of Syrah. Its pale, ethereal pink color tinted with gold or orange, releases a bouquet of citrus fruits and white orchard flowers. On the palate, the immediate effect is lively and bright, revealing notes of pink grapefruit, fleshy fruit and, once the wine has had a chance to breathe, hints of fruit tart. The finish is complex and lasting.
Blend: 60% Mourvedre, 26% Cinsault, 11% Grenache, 3% Syrah
