Mon Rosé de Montrose, Languedoc, France 2020
Description: Domaine Montrose is about 40 mins drive from Beziers on the South coast of France. They’re making a range of wines using local varietals and respectful winemaking. All of their roses are Provencal in style – light pink, dry, pure.
The property has been in the Coste family since 1701, that’s 9 generations now. There’s also some buildings/ruins on site which they believe date back much longer. Olivier Coste is the current winemaker and has worked alongside his dad since his teens.
Sustainability – Certified HVE 3, Carbon Neutral since 2019. They also have wood/grassland areas which they leave to grow naturally surrounding the vineyards. This helps to encourage biodiversity in the vineyards and offers natural protection from the elements. They are part of a group committed to planting Mediterranean trees (olive, almost, oak and more) in and around vineyards – so far they’ve planted 3000 from 21 different species.
“This wine has a wonderful freshness with pure strawberry flavours and an amazing length.”
