Description

The legendary 500-year-old Lagrézette estate is located in the historic Southwest
of France. Grapes for Le Rosé de Julie are sourced from 20-year-old estate vines on the
third terrace of the Lot River on gravelly/clay soils. A band of ancient Kimmeridgian
limestone dating from the Jurassic period, similar to Chablis terroirs, runs throughout
the vineyard. Yields are 40 hectoliters per hectare.

chateau is shown on the label.


Winemaker Notes :
Hand harvested, the grapes are transported to the winery at a controlled temperature of
39.2 °F. The whole grapes are pressed by our horizontal pneumatic press under nitrogen,
to minimize oxidation and to preserve the aromatic potential. Fermentation takes three
weeks at a constant temperature of 64.4°F. The wine is then aged for four months in
stainless steel, with lees stirring once very week.


Tasting Notes :
Le Rosé de Julie has a pale pink color. Initially, the nose is powerful and intense,
dominated by peach and raspberry notes. After swirling, the wine is expressive,
complex and elegant, with hints of gooseberry and white flowers. On the palate it is
well-balanced, with freshness, red berry flavors and floral notes leading to a persistent,
delicious finish.
