Light and textured rosé made using the saignée method - a term related to bloodletting that is nowhere near as gruesome as it sounds! Its a way of bleeding the tanks to take some of the wine out after a very brief maceration, whilst the remaining wine carries on its journey, ending up as one of Michaëls full-blown red cuvées. The short time on skins leaves a wine that is limber and bright, with a vivid colour and buckets of strawberry and raspberry freshness. The fruit here is of exceptional quality, from extremely rare and low yielding 100+ year-old vines. A bit of time in old barrels rounds it off and adds a richness and depth. Dangerous with some Pélardon goats’ cheese from the area!
