Le Grand Cros

L'Esprit de Provence Red (2011)

An intense ruby and slightly garnet red. The nose is intense and complex combining fruity tones (blueberry and cassis), underlined by some sweet spices.
HARVEST NOTE

Le Grand Cros is a family estate situated in the heart of AOC Cotes de Provence, the world capital of dry ross. This estate was one of the first to produce sparkling rosé made in the traditional method. Grand Cros is one of the most technically innovative estates in southern France from computer models for disease control to advanced infrared measurements for determining grape ripeness. Technology though doesn’t mean these wines are not handcrafted, indeed most the grapes are hand-picked.

TASTING NOTE

The mouth is first round and supple. Sweet spicy aromas accompany the supple tannins very harmoniously. Dark fruit tones and hints of pepper and spice compliment the delightful body.
