From the vineyard of Château La Marzelle.
The robe in petal pink, pastel, bright and transparent. The vinification is slow, at low temperature, and gives a beautiful complexity to this rosé wine.
The nose is very fruity with notes of pear, apricot, exotic fruits, as well as strawberry, white peach and floral. The mouth is fruity and smooth, long and creamy, wealthy of a good acidity which extends the tasting.
Should be served around 10‑12°C
