2018 Les Vignerons de Fontès "Prieuré Saint-Hippolyte" Languedoc Rosé

SKU #1415149

Les Vignerons de Fontes is a cooperative winemaking facility in the hills outside the village of Pezenas in the Languedoc. Oenologist Corinne Pastourel oversees the project, which has a host of growers spread throughout the region over a range of soils including schist, basalt, limestone and clay. Thirty of these growers formed the cooperative in the 1930s and now their numbers surpass 200. K&L co-founder Clyde Beffa met Corinne years ago and forged the relationship that would bring us some of our most popular value wines coming from the south of France. The rosé, one of our best sellers every year, is a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache that is made in the saignée style where a light maceration occurs and the fruit is bled off the skins. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, preserving the freshness and clean character of the wine. It is bright and lively, with aromas of raspberries, redcurrants, and white flowers. The Mediterranean influence is easily felt in this region, and the best cuisine for this wine is just that - Mediterranean! Serve with roasted vegetables, chickpea salad, and fresh cheeses. A delight!

A casual search for Hippolyte Rose turned up a bunch of ravishing photos of a venerable Galician hybrid rose, a botanical marvel but not ready for prime time quaffing, with or without thorns. This rosé, on the other hand, drinks beautifully from the get-go, and invites raves from our staff and customers with virtually every new vintage. Imbued with lovely aromas and zesty flavors of pomegranate, pink grapefruit and red berries, this wine pays homage to the Mediterranean region and its kaleidoscopic cuisine. Pair it with everything from canapes to shellfish, cold chicken to pasta salads, or simply enjoy as a delightful aperitif throughout the year.
