Combel La Serre L’épatant Antidote Rosé

19.00

Combel La Serre has been certified organic since 2013, though farmed without chemicals for several decades up to that point. 100% Malbec (known in Cahors as Auxerrois). The vines are 40 years old, grown on clay and limestone soils at an elevation of 320m. Fermentation and aging take place in small tanks.”The Splendid Antidote to the Heat of the Causse” is the amusing and appropriate name of this refreshing rosé. (The Causse is the high limestone plateau around Cahors, which gets brutally hot in the summer.)  The wine shows a pretty pink/orange color and aromas of ripe cherry, raspberry and cassis with citrus and spice. There are creamy cassis, raspberry and citrus flavors on the palate which shows lovely ripeness and density, with hints of orange peel, earth, smoke and brown spice that continue in the long finish. This is quite delicious and a great value – as are all the wines from Jean-Pierre and Julien Ilbert at Combel-la-Serre. Great Value
