Le Grand Cros 'La Rivale' Sparkling Rose

More zesty and frivolous than her older sister “La Maitresse”, the charm of “La Rivale” lie in her fresh yet delicate character. It is a charmat method sparkling rosé made from estate grapes at Domaine du Grand Cros in Provence.

CLIMATE
Thanks to our altitude and the microclimate of our estate, we enjoy relatively fresh temperatures for Provence which allow us to obtain the natural acidity ideal for sparkling wine.

Hand Harvest.

WINE-MAKING
Each plot is vinified separately. The clusters are pressed quickly with a separation of the seeds and the presses. Decantation by intense cold. Control of fermentation temperatures. After fermentation and stabilization, second fermentation in stainless steel tank.

TASTING NOTES
Lychee crystalline pink. The nose has delicate aromas of strawberry, fresh almonds and white flowers. The mouth is fresh and fruity, the bubbles fine, the finish pleasant and refreshing.
