Chateau St Martin de la Garrigue Tradition Rose 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The Guidas have certainly left their mark on the property. In addition to extensive renovations in the chateau and the reconstruction of a new cellar and winery, the Guidas hired Jean-Claude Zabalia, one of the region's most talented winemakers, to manage the vineyards and oversee the cellars. Together, they have brought this domaine to new heights, making wines that are sold in over twenty-eight different countries. They plant sixteen different varietals. While most of their vineyards are planted to red grapes, they are also known for their deliciously fresh white, Picpoul de Pinet. Andrew Jefford, author of The New France, raves, 'Perhaps the best wine for me is an astonishing Picpoul de Pinet, picked very late from low-yielding vines: those who consider this an inarticulate if refreshing choice, the Muscadet of the Midi, should try this mint-and-verbena-scented, powerfully lemony wine.' KLWM Salesperson Lori Varsames has written of the domaine, 'White or red, rose or Cuvee Reservee, everything coming from Chateau St Martin de la Garrigue offers up incredible value.' Be sure to try Cuvee La Bronzinelle - it is the perfect wine for barbecue." -Importer
