K&L Notes

Château Viranel is a small family-run domaine located in the picturesque Languedoc appellation of Saint-Chinian. The domaine's rosé is perfect for an apéritif but is also ideal served throughout a meal because of its richness and volume on the palate. Pretty rose petal color. An intense nose of summer fruits (blackberry, raspberry, black currant) and a fresh and fruity attack. The finish is elegant and long. A truly gastronomic rosé from 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache Noir and 20% Cinsault, made by drawing off for Grenache and Syrah. It is an extremely versatile rosé to enjoy with a plethora of dishes including summer barbecues, salads, tagine with prunes, paella, Andalusian gazpacho, terrine of spring vegetables, beef carpaccio, stuffed vegetables, roasted peppers, salmon cakes, ratatouille and many other delicious dishes to match your culinary expertise!

Rec cherry, cranberry, watermelon and jasmine, with beautifully balanced acidity. This wine never fails to impress me- and consistently delivers above its price point!

This fresh, pretty rose hails from Saint Chinian, a small appellation in Languedoc, and features bright aromas of raspberry, cranberry, and orange zest. These aromas persist as flavors on the palate, adding subtle nuances of fresh herbs and saline minerality along the way. Unlike other roses in this price, though, the Viranel offers unexpected weight and richness, making this an ideal rose to pair with food, in addition to easy drinking by the pool.
