Laurent Miquel Rosé 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Cinsault 80%, Syrah 20%. Laurent Miquel's family has owned vineyards in the Languedoc since the 1780s. The use of Culture Raisonae (this term was recently described by Jancis Robinson as 'verging on organic viticulture') is applied to vine growing in all of Laurent's estates. Laurent does not believe in heavy intervention by the winemaker. Noble grapes from low yielding vines on the appropriate terroir should require minimal intervention to produce a fine wine. For this rose Miguel hand selects the best Cinsault and Syrah. Refreshing strawberry and blueberry flavors with a dose of minerality and an elegant finish.

Laurent Miquel is based at Château Cazal Viel, the Miquel family estate in the Saint Chinian appellation, South of France. The superb terroir of Cazal Viel was first planted by Roman warriors, the ruins of their villas and an ancient well still stand on the grounds of the estate. For almost 6 centuries (from 1202) the monks of the local Abbaye de Fontcaude crafted their wine at Cazal Viel. Since 1791, eight generations of the Miquel family have worked the vines of their estate high in Languedoc hills. Father to Son, harvest after harvest, they deepen their knowledge of the fickle nature of the vines that grow here and learn to work in harmony with nature.                           Read less
