2018 Williams Chase Jolie Rosé, Prestige Cuvée - 75cl
Appellation: Côtes de Provence
The wine oozes flavours of dried peaches and orange peel, twinned with an alluring aroma of sandalwood. This complexity is complemented by an opulent buttery texture and harmonised with mouth-watering acidity which leads to a moreish nutty finish.
Grapes for the prestige cuvée ‘Jolie’ (‘Pretty One’) herald from a small parcel of 45 year old Côtes de Provence classified vines at Domaine Saint Jean De Villecroze. Syarh and Cinsault grapes are hand harvested early in the morning, pressed and then allowed a very short period of skin contact. 60% of the blend is fermented in new Burgundy barrels and the remaining 40% undergoes traditional fermentation in stainless steel. Controlled malolactic fermentation enhances the complexity of the wine both in flavour and texture. Bottling takes place after 10 months of ageing on site at the Domaine.
