Villa Blanche Grenache Rosé
Laurent Calmel and Jerome Joseph are two of the nicest guys you will ever meet on the French wine scene, and are doing some pretty amazing things on their beautiful organically-farmed property just a few kms from the ancient city of Carcassonne. Visiting this estate is like something straight of an episode of Rick Stein, with the Canal du Midi passing just minutes from the property – there is little more enjoyable than sitting in one of the beautiful canal-side restaurants over a very long lunch watching holidaymakers in their rented boats negotiating the locks! Rent out the farmhouse or one of the other small, beautifully appointed gites for a real taste of French rural life. But in the meantime, their wines are a wonderful catalogue of the very best the Languedoc-Roussillon region has to offer.
Who said the best Rosés had to come from Provence? This wine has the classic, beautifully pale pink colour with golden gleams. The nose presents a bouquet of white flowers and roses followed by the freshness of aniseed and mint. Deliciously supple, dry and refreshing in the mouth, like biting into a fresh peach, with apricot, a touch of delicately lemony citrus notes and grenadine. A pure delight on its own but also a fully-fledged wine capable of accompanying a meal with poise.
