Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

Our LVE Rosé is a brilliant, pale pink color - It exudes fruitiness and elegance.

Aroma: 

The nose is aromatic with delicate notes of peach blossom, raspberry and apricot. 

Palate: 

On the palate, crisp light notes of fresh picked strawberry and white nectarine lead to an elegant, lengthy and a mineral finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The grapes were selected from vineyards in the Montagne Sainte Victoire and Massif des Maures regions of Provence in France. These areas have stony and limestone soils that bring out the fresh flavor notes and sweet aromas in the wine.
The grapes are directly and gently pressed to ensure the pale color and protect the inherent finesse of the varietals. Fermentation at cool temperatures keeps the freshness and further develops varietal aromatics. Finally, the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks on fine lees to maintain the brightness and enhance its elegance.
