Domaine la Croix Belle Grenache Blend Vin de Pays des Côtes de Thongue le Champ des Grillons 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant colour with pink tints. Aromas of red fruits—crushed strawberry. Harmonious in the mouth, slightly acidulated but good body. An elegant, gourmet rosé. Serve during the summer with Mediterranean dishes as well as throughout the year with traditionnal or spicy dishes.

Vines have always been part of the Languedoc historic heritage. Traces of wild vine leaves, dated back to the Miocene period, have been found near Montpellier. Southern France wine growing history only really started during Antiquity and the Roman Empire. The wine economy rose there with the reign of Auguste, légionnaires veterans were awarded land in the Narbonnaise region, where they grew vine and olive trees. This vineyard stretches from the shores of the Mediterranean up to the Cévennes. The land of Domaine La Croix Belle is part of it. While ploughing in depth a parcel of our vineyard in the early seventies, two roman marble heads were found. Read less

With a very fruity nose with vanilla scented strawberry fruit, smells a bit sweet and marshmallowy, drier than expected on the palate, in fact dry, nice slinky , slick feel, earthy fruit with a nice touch of spice a more savory style in the mouth than the nose would lead one to believe. Spicy clean finish. A nice Provencal style. 88opts

Strawberry and cedar nose makes way for a wine with a touch of sweetness on the attack, rustic flavors and a bit of oak creaminess. Largely earthy and dry, I'd definitely recommend this with grilled foods.

Enlightened well balanced acids with a subtle melony and pineapple fruits, and a bubblegum finish. Fun to drink by itself.

peach in color with strawberry perfume and stone fruit on the nose - their are mineral notes that feel as if you are bathing in a creek...light fruit, grapefruit and crisp acidity. Enjoyable for a summer bbq
