Abbaye Sainte-Marie de Pierredon - Donna Rosa 2008 - Wine

Donna Rosa
Donna Rosa
The right tone Fresh and elegant. A pure expression of the estate, to produce wines of conviviality. Mistress of the estate. It was to honour the mistress of the estate that this delicately coloured and seductively perfumed cuvée was christened Donna Rosa. The delicacy of cinsault and voluptuousness of grenache give it a palette of rich aromas to complement a long and lingering finish. Elegance and delicacy in a fresh and fragile rosé.

Tasting

Pale colour, reminiscent of the hue of an Elisa rose, crystal-clear. Elegant nose with aromas of flowers and fruits of the orchard such as white peach. Round, expressive and delicate in the mouth, showing a fine harmony between the acidity and the alcohol content in the wine. A final fullness in the mouth with some pleasing touches of red fruit.

Ideal complements

As an aperitif or to accompany fine summer dishes: Provençal stuffed baby vegetables, Niçoise salad...
