Les Chemins de Bassac / Isa Rosé / Vins de Pays des Cotes de Thongue / 2018 / 750mL
This small fully organic estate produces honest, genuine wines that reflect the land of the Languedoc with beautiful grace. Here on a small estate north of Beziers not far from the sea, Isabelle and Remy Ducellier produce a lithe and graceful Rosé from Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and a small hint of (yes) Pinot Noir - all fermented separately and then blended into this lovely wine. These are young vines on limestone and clay that produce an energetic and pleasing wine of darker berry flavors with a touch of savory earthy garden essence. A wine produced entirely from the Saignee method, this is a true wine of the land itself. Delicious and enjoyable in every way.
