Terroir
Located in the upper basin of the Arc, the terroir is composed of scree and clay-sandstone from the Late Cretaceous period, with colluvial deposits from the surrounding hills. The etymology of the name "Maupague" (meaning "giving little"), and the geological characteristics of the soil make this property particularly well-suited to the growing of grapes; there have been vines here for many generations.

 

Vineyard
Average age of vines: 20 years Grenache 50% Cinsault 40% Syrah 10% Yield: 45 hl/ha. Minimum use of pesticide approach (Agriculture raisonnée)

 

Vinification
Skin maceration of the destemmed grapes during filling of the water-cooled pneumatic press. Draining of the juices, and then light pressing at constant temperature.

 

Tasting notes
Appearance: Very pale colour with flesh tones. Nose: Delicate fruity bouquet with slightly aniseedy hints of dill and menthol. Palate: Notes of terroir in this rosé that offers excellent minerality.

 

Matching food & wine
Grilled gambas with fennel seeds.
