Domaine de Fontsainte / Corbières Gris de Gris Rosé / 2019 / 750mL
One of the rarest rosés in all of France made mostly from the Grenache Gris grape with a small amount of Carignan, Mourvedre and Cinsault pressed entirely in the Saignee method only in order to keep the wine as elegant as possible. Grenache Gris is an unusual mutation of Grenache - it literally spontaneously appears as a light pink skinned version of the red grape in the vines - and here it is made into a racy, refined, citrus and red berry focused wine that tantalizes your tongue and your mind. This is meditative wine that can be enjoyed with ease - the sand, clay, limestone and round pebbles here offer a complex range of soils that somehow, effortlessly integrate into this remarkable wine. Terroir is not a common experience in a rosé and yet it can be found in this wine - a testament to the brilliant mastery and craft of this great and always affordable winery. Utterly addictive.
