Region: Languedoc

Appellation: AOP Crémant de Limoux

Varietals: 70% Chardonnay, 20% Chenin Blanc 10% Pinot Noir

Thanks to winemaker Jean-Claude Mas for reminding us of the South of France with its beautiful coastline and long sandy beaches with hours of sun to enjoy as well as the rocky Mediteranean hills with scruffy vegetation and aromatic bushes. What a perfect spot to enjoy the regional wines that flow from this region.

Languedoc is the central region of the South of France is one of France’s major wine-growing areas and the terroir producing lively grapes with beautiful aromas and exciting flavors.

Sparking wines are always refreshing and Cremant de Limoux Rosé Brut is dry and refreshing with just enough residual sweetness to enhance the lively flavors and aromas of fruit from the persistent bubbles. The production method or methode traditionelle produces a clean and crisp sparkling wine with tangy grapefruit flavors that tickle the mouth and aromatic summer fruits such as peaches and other stone fruits that are pleasing to the tongue.

Pairings: This rosè is very versatile and will pair with just about everything you can dream up for summer time meals. It is delicate enough to pair well with fresh strawberries, apples, melons, cheese, crackers and olives to your favorite chicken or seafood dishes from the grill.

Coté Mas Sud de France : Rosé Aurore

Region: Languedoc

Appellation: IGP Languedoc

Varietals: Grenache 50%, Cinsault 30%, Syrah 20%

Coté Mas Sud de France Rosé Aurora is a beautiful and easy drinking wine will keep you refreshed during these late summertime gatherings.

Gentle pressing, regular pump-overs and using only the free run juice is the secret recipe for such pristine fruit expression and refreshing acidity. This balanced rosé showcases the freshness of spring that we love so much. Juicy strawberries and sweet-tart cherries fill the mouth with rich fruit flavors and just enough acidity to pair well with food. Burger night from the grill or marinated chicken from the grill would complement the lively flavors and aromas of the wine as well as sitting by the pool with your sunglasses and sunscreen scream from this summer wine!

Rosés are made for the summer but don’t forget about the upcoming holidays! Rosés are extremely versatile will many foods during every season!

 

ENJOY!
