Gris Blanc became my favourite Rosé wine this summer. Lovely half dry and refreshing, light on the palate when cold and flowery when it has warmed up a little bit. Not too expensive either, I picked up a full box, six bottles for €50 which I think is a good price.

The wine comes from Gérard Bertrand who also makes some lovely red wines. Its from Languedoc-Roussillon and I hope that it will be continued next year as well.
It is the most colourless rosé wine I have ever seen, it looks like a white wine with just a hint of rose in it and it immediately became a favourite for me.
The grape is Grenache Gris which can be found locally in the Tutavel district in Languedoc-Roussillon and is probably a mutation of Grenache Noir. The grapes are picked by hand and immediately pressed. Fermentation happens at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks.
