2020 Pays d’Oc, Le Ballon Rosé

For this lovely rosé we have a blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Cinsault the result is a perfect summer wine, with a joyful and greedy substance on the palate supported by a beautiful liveliness. Some pleasure !

Refreshing, it will go well with cold meats, summer salads, poultry, white meats (pork and veal), light-bodied cheeses.
