Produced in Tavel, the heart of the Rhone Valley’s rosé production, this Côtes du Rhône rosé is crafted from 30+ year old vineyards planted in soils rich with calcareous sandstone and positioned on gently undulating slopes for optimal sun exposure.
The 2020 vintage is characterized by its earliness. In winter and spring there were very high temperatures, some of them confirmed as the highest in France over the past 80 years. Flowering started mid-May in optimal weather conditions through the beginning of June with a dry summer. 2020 was one of the earliest vintages harvested over the past 10 years, similar to 2015 and 2018. Les Cassagnes 2020 is supple, balanced and very elegant with a pure and clear fruit expression. This vintage is a ‘classic’ representative of the Les Cassagnes terroir.
This pale pink rosé has a lot of tangerine, floral nuances and fresh zesty characters to offer. The mouth is round and seamless on the palate. The finish has a very good vivacity and lead to a fruity, juicy and energetic wine.
A perfect pair with grilled fish and spaghetti in tomato sauce.
