La Grange de Quatre Sous Vin de Pays 'Le Rose' 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker's Tasting notes "A salmon pink, it expresses aromas of red berries, grapefruit supported. Fresh and light, it goes well with evenings of spring and summer." "Vineyards receive more rainfall than most others in the region—helpful in this dry climate. Soils are worked naturally with composts and herbal infusions to fertilize and manage pests. All grapes are harvested by hand. All cuvées are bottled unfiltered. Vine Age: 20 to 30 years." - Importer Winemaker: "By the time Hildegard received official certification in 1999, she had already been farming sustainably for several years. It was around that same time that she and Ernst split, and she started managing the property entirely on her own. Today, she is now part of a group called Vinifilles, an association of eighteen female winegrowers in Languedoc-Rousillion who assemble to share their research and expertise with each other. She is well-respected by her peers, so much so that Kermit refers to her wine as “grand cru quality.” Hildegard has since remarried and continues to direct this eight-hectare farm outside of the very small village of Assignac (145 inhabitants) in the appellation of Saint-Chinian. Though her vineyards sit comfortably within the boundaries of the A.O.C. Saint-Chinian, she prefers to take the lesser designation of Vin de Pays d’Oc, so she can plant the varietals that she wants, and make her wine without the same imposed rules and restrictions. Over the years, she has introduced unlikely grape varietals into her plantings, namely Malbec, and at times has experimented with some eclectic Swiss varietals. Not surprisingly, Hildegard’s wines are intense and powerful. Enjoy them with some bottle age or decanting." - Importer
