A well-balanced, generous and lively wine.
Merlot is an undisputed contributor to great red wines, but it can also be used to make fresh and fruity rosés. The outcomes can in fact be extremely convincing with wines that are recognisable by their discrete colour with salmon-pink tints.
Although it didn’t originate in the south of France, the Merlot variety benefits from the very positive weather conditions here to make great rosé wines. Roche Mazet, seeking to bring out the best of this grape variety, has selected wines from the different parts of Pays d’Oc, which each contribute their own aromatic touch. Roche Mazet blends these together to produce a very rich, genuinely distinctive Merlot Rosé.
Roche Mazet Merlot Rosé displays a bright, clear robe of delicate pink. Its appealing nose features fruit aromas of strawberry and apricot, as well as floral hints of rose and acacia. On the palate, it forms a balance of freshness and roundness.
Served chilled between 8° et 10°C (46° to 50°F), this very elegant, lively wine is an ideal companion for starters, marinated grills, gratineed vegetables and red fruit desserts.
