Côtes de Gascogne Rosé de Pressée 2018

Domaine Tariquet

Terroir: With concerns about protecting the environment, Domaine Tariquet has been sustainably managing the vineyards for over 20 years. The estate is certified ISO 14001 and HVE (High Environment Value).

Vinification: Domaine Tariquet uses a sustainable method of growing and only uses natural fertilizers. Destemming of the grapes occurs during harvest, mechanically. Grapes are then transported in air-tight tanks to the facility. The grapes go through maceration with skin-contact for 8-12 hours into temperature-controlled pneumatic presses. The freshly pressed juices are matured on fine lees at a low, cool temperature. The wine is kept in cold storage until bottling in tanks at -2°C (28.4°F) to preserve the wines’ freshness. Bottling only occurs upon order to ensure optimal fruitiness and crispness all year long.

Additional Information

The blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Tannat gives this pleasurable wine an intense yet subtle nose. A beautiful bright colour, soft spicy notes opening to a delicious combination of wild raspberry and flower petals. Charming as an aperitif, Domaine Tariquet Rosé de Pressée flatters tapas, a barbecue, summer salads, Italian, exotic or spicy cuisine, a strawberry pie or some bitter chocolate.

    "A light wine offering red fruits, hints of caramel and a soft texture, this is immediately attractive. Acidity is smoothed by the ripe fruitiness and rounded aftertaste. Drink now."
