La Quille Rosé
2021 : A beautiful pale pink color, the nose seduces with its elegance and a revelation of fresh and acidulous fruits such as raspberry and pear. The greediness continues in the mouth with a lively and fresh attack and very aromatic finish.
The 2020 vintage is particularly marked by a warm climate. The winter is mild, with little rainfall, accompanied by unusually warm temperatures. The budburst is early. The spring, warm and damp, favors an active growth. By contrast, the summer is dry and very hot, slowing down the maturation of the grapes. Fortunately, we receive a series of small stormy rains from mid-August onwards which boosts the ripening of the grapes.
At harvest time, the berries are beautiful, very healthy and have a remarkable organoleptic quality. The wines are rich, aromatic and precise. The vintage is generous and intense.
A tasty and voluptuous wine.
2019 : A beautiful pale pink colour. The nose is delicate and subtle with aromas of vine peach, raspberry and strawberry. The palate is refreshing and crisp with notes of pink grapefruit and blood orange.
2018 : The 2018 vintage was a real test of patience.
The first 6 months of the year were dominated by incessant rainfall and mild temperatures. The weather then changed radically on the 15 th of July, marking the start of a hot summer with periods of drought. The harvest period stretched from late August to late October, with the grapes reaching excellent levels of maturity. This exceptionally long and rain-free harvest period allowed us to fine-tune our picking operations. In the cellar the juices proved to be very consistent, with a beautiful colour. This was an unusual year with extreme conditions, but in the end it turned out to be an excellent vintage.
2017 : For the first Rosé of Merlot from Château de Cérons, la Quille Rosé 2017 presents a nice pale pink colour with a subtle and delicate nose of red fruits, raspberry, strawberry and peach. It displays a great freshnness, acid and crispy mouth.
