Domaine La Courtade Winery

Domaine La Courtade 'L'Alycastre' Rose 2012
"La Courtade, an organic estate on the Ile de Porquerolles near Hyeres, makes this delicious rosé from Grenache, Mourvedre and Tibouren - a local grape from Provence that adds an intiquing spicy character to the fruit. Part direct press, part saigné, with a long, slow fermentation with wild yeasts.

Domaine Courtade L'Alycastre Rose 2011
"L'Alycastre Rose is a wine to be drunk young because of its fruit (strawberries) and flower notes. The low yields enable it to age but in that case the primary aromas are replaced by aging aromas. THe ideal serving temperature is 50 to 55 degrees." ~ Winery notes  1/3 Mourvedre, 1/3 Grenache,
