  1. the rosé wine

    The rosé winemaking

    In France, the rosé wine isn’t a blend of red wine and white wine. Except for Champagne rosé, this mixture is prohibited by law.

    Rosé wines are made from red grape juice colorless or slightly colored, which is applied:

    - A white winemaking or direct pressing of red grapes: to avoid a too strongly tinged juices, pressing must not be pushed so as not to tear the film and prevent the release of too much pigment.

    - A winemaking  between white winemaking and red winemaking, of conducting a bloodletting in the tank after a slight maceration of the grapes. The drainage is practiced when the wine has reached the desired color.

    Is this rosé wine is a great wine??

    . Yes, some rosé give me a lot of pleasure and are worthy of great wines.

    my philosophy is never judge a wine on its color, but on its depth and cleanliness. The first area of confrontation of this wine is its sulfur content. I simply feel some roses( red and withe ) to have a headache.

    The different colors:

    - Salmon clear :light,  glug glug wine and dry
    - Orange-Pink: semi-powerfull and dry
    - Grenadine : this wine is  powerful  with a touch of sugar

    How the sulfur smell in the pink (and other colors)
    - Sulphur invades your nostrils
    - Metallic taste in the finish
    - You smell burning rubber in the nose and empty glass


    The rosé wine and yeast:

    The rosé wine is above all an important trade for some winegrowers. The natural yeast can be temperamental and take a long time for winemaking (until September the following year). This is why many winegrowers of Provence work with chemical  yeasts.


    The icing is a sacrilege to drink. 12 ° is the right temperature.

    My favorite: the two styles of rosés without  back of sulfur.
    The buccal style:
    Peter Fisher (Revelette):
    The only wine with chimecal yeast of peter fisher is the rosé. It is semi powerfull and buccal but no return of sulfur

    The village of Correns: the  village is the first  organic  in France. I enjoyed  the rosé wine of cooperative and Michael Latz.

    The spiritual style

    Chateau St. Anne. For me it is the best of the best You can keep this wine, and you must to caraf this wine. This is proof that the rose wine can be a great wine.
