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:
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.

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

Not usually a fan of rose, but this is a winner. Fruit forward, balanced, refreshing, and ready for a summer party. See http://www.laurent-miquel.com/us/cinsault-syrah.html

This wine was recommended to us by our friends at 67 wines, and we're loving it! Southern France has some fantastic "drink now" bargains and this one is a great example of that value! Slightly masculine and woodsy with a hint of smokiness (which we love) and tons of dark fruit. This is a great everyday wine.

Wonderful, full-bodied wine with hints of cherry and cocoa. Terrific finish, nice and smooth, lingers on the palate.

Goldgelbe Farbe mit lebhaften, grünlichen Reflexen, blumige Nase mit feinen Fruchtaromen, im Gaumen Aprikosen- und Pfirsicharomen, feine Mandelnoten, frischer und grosszügiger Körper.

Characterized by a beautiful pale pink robe this Cinsualt Syrah epitomizes the best of southern French roses with forward fruit flavors and perfect balance. Cinsault contributes freshness and soft texture to the blend and Syrah the dramatic color and delicious red fruit. Serve chilled 12-14�C and drink ideally within 12 months of purchase.

Another great value from Laurent Miquel. This rose is dry but fruity and refreshing.

Dichtes Rubinrot mit leicht granatfarbenen Reflexen, einladende Nase mit Aromen nach reifen, roten Früchten und einer feinen Würz- und Kräuternote. Am Gaumen sanft, saftig, mit intensiven Beerenaromen und für die Region charakteristischen Rosmarin- und Thymianaromen.

Laurent Miquel strikes again with this nicely priced rich yet elegant Syrah.
