Summer is showing the tip of its nose and the terrasse are calling for a generous rosé 😎. This rare wine from Paul Old will give you the breeze of clean linen and wild strawberries. The palate is a crushed red fruit bomb coming with delicate spices such as coriander and cinnamon. The texture is light but indulgent. The whole experience is very Bandol-Rosé-like. A Rosé that comes with the complexity of a red wine.

An average level of rain fall after the 2021 harvest was followed by a warm winter with little rain. Extremely hot summer months drew comparisons with our first vintage, 2003. Intermittent storms during June / July and August brought rain to some of the maritime vineyards. All the vines were affected by varying levels of hydric stress. Low disease pressure during the growing season , however some primary mildew infection was found in some of low lying vines . The harvest was early with a largeand heathy crop, very little selection required. Ferments were slow due to low levels of nitrogen in the juice. Final wines are characterful, textural and vibrant.
