Rhône Valley, France
Mas de Longchamp- 2016

Skilfully blended from selected Grenache and Caladoc grape varieties captures the mood of summer in the Mediterranean style climate in the southern Rhône valley, towards Provence. The Caladoc grape is a cross between Grenache and Malbec and brings added fruit and spice to the bouquet. Here, the marriage with Grenache works really well delivering a characterful rosé hinting at wild strawberries mingled with a faint whisper of wild herb and spice. Dry and crisp the wine also shows good texture and concentration, ensuring that it will be equally at home served with lighter food or simply enjoyed as an apéritif.

Mas de Longchamp

Fabrice and André Benoit own 24 hectares of vineyards in the VDP des Bouches du Rhône, which are planted with 60% grenache, 15% syrah, 10% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot and 5% cinsault. Stony soils give good drainage for damper days whilst having the ability to store heat and give optimum ripeness to the grapes in the long summers.
