Domaine de César
AOP Costières de Nîmes
Details of the wine
The terroir is typical of the appellation, with leached durancian fersiallitic soils which are very poor and covered with smooth stones which reflect the powerful summer sunlight.
The varieties are typical of the appellation: 75% Grenache and 25 % Syrah.
The grapes are harvested when perfectly ripe then destemmed. They are cold-macerated for 4 to 7 hours to achieve the depth of colour wanted and then the fluid is racked from the vat. Alcoholic fermentation starts after cold settling and is temperature-controlled to bring out the fuitness. When alcoholic fermentation is complete, the wines are racked twice and blended. Then they are left to mature in refrigerated vats for 4 months.
This intense rosé exudes fragrances of small red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) with fresh amyl aromas. The mouth is full and finishes on a note of freshness. Serve at around 10°C.
To be enjoyed within a year of bottling.
