Wine Enthusiast "In this wine, a whiff of cherry-blossom perfume introduces flavors of fresh strawberry and raspberry. Medium bodied and briskly balanced, the rejuvenating, fruity sip is anchored by a salty, mineral edge." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "A pretty rosé with sliced-strawberry and lemon aromas and flavors. Medium to full body and a fresh, vivid finish with just a hint of cherries." (2019 vintage)

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate "The cotton candy-scented 2017 Cotes du Rhone Rose is just a little too confected-smelling for me, although it's otherwise pleasantly medium-bodied and does have some bright, citrus-zesty notes on the finish." (2017 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "Salmon pink in the glass, this concentrated yet spry rosé suggest tart raspberry and cherry flavors with delicate hints of rose petal and bramble. It's still quite fresh a year after bottling and should drink well through the end of 2019." (2017 vintage)

Wine Spectator "Pretty white cherry and rose petal notes are aligned to a light stony spine, keeping this fresh and focused through the finish. Grenache and Cinsault." (2017 vintage)

The Winemaker "Beautiful, delicate colour and clarity, deliciously fruity bouquet full of red berries and memories of summer."

Grenache noir (60%) Cinsault (40%)

Made by award-winning producer, Lavau, this wine comes from a selection of vineyards from across the southern Rhône Valley, running from Montélimar to Nîmes.
The Grenache and Cinsault vines are planted on dry, generally stony, terrain and produce a yield of 46 hl/ha. The grapes are pressed immediately upon arrival in the winery, and a lightly tinted juice is then vinified like white wine, at the same temperature (16-18°C). Malolactic fermentation is prevented in order to preserve the fresh, crisp character of this rosé. Ageing takes place in vat and the wine is bottled before spring.

Originally from Bordeaux, in France the Lavau family has been involved with winemaking for generations, and have had vineyards ranging from Bordeaux to Tunisia. In 1964 they were seduced by the richness and quality of the Provencal soil and settled down to make wine in the Rhone Valley.

The cellars of Lavau are managed by Benoit and Frederic Lavau, who work in partnership with 350 different grape growers. Benoit is a frequent visitor to Singapore and Pop Up Wine events.
