This summers Rosé Wine

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.
