Life is always better with a glass of rosé!
Rosé wine on a sunny holiday, with the sea lapping at our feet; priceless! Rosé wine brings with it memories of simpler times; the evening song of the cicadas, summer romances and good times with friends! Rosé wine is the long and lazy summer lunch; the beautiful, seductive companion who makes it difficult to get out of your chair afterwards! Rosé wine is the glass that always gets left by the swimming pool, forgotten and invariably ends up going for a swim! Rosé wine is all this and so much more. A snapshot of a summer well spent, of sun-kissed memories and moments that will last forever. It’s time to jump in head-first and find out more about this gorgeous wine, of every shade and style. Wherever you are, you’re always well accompanied by a glass of rosé!
La sélection Splendid - Radiant Reds
Instinct Parcellaire Rosé 2017
AOP Côtes de Provence
Here we have a gorgeous rosé from the best terroir of Côtes-de-Provence: La Londe-les-Maures. Close to the Mediterranean sea, where the freshness of the sea breezes combines with the Provencal sunshine to create a perfect balance in the vineyards. 'Instinct Parcellaire' is a selection from the very best vines, harvested at night to retain the delicate aromas so famed from the region. Fruity Grenache, refreshing Cinsault and vibrant Vermentino; a classy rosé indeed!Splendid
Château du Moulin-à-Vent 2015
2015 is the newest vintage for this esteemed wine, a blend of old vine Gamay from La Rochelle, Thorins, Moulin-à-Vent and Caves. The Parinet family have been working hard to perfect the assemblage since 2009, and it hasn't taken long for it to find its way to the best tables in France! The 2015, as you might expect from a warm vintage, is powerful, structured and full of juicy fruit. The mineral nuances echo the terroir and you'd be forgiven for confusing this with high quality Pinot Noir!Radiant Reds
