Notes from Living Wines:

Michel produces an extraordinary rosé which is light, vibrant and lively. This is released under the Vin de France appellation. The vines from which this wine is made are over 30 years old.

To make Mystère de Rosée Michel macerated the grapes for 12 hours and then pressed very slowly for 12 hours. The juice was then fermented and aged in foudre. It is so bright and the flavours, including the juice of pomegranate and red fruits, are lingering.

Fermentation and elevage takes place in large oak foudres.

The wine has a great depth of flavour despite the light touch. It is also perfect for summer day time drinking at only 11.5% alcohol.

The label shows Michel working in the vineyards with his trusty horse Bistere.
