Wine of the Week – Chateau De Lancyre 2013 Rosé

Chateau De Lancyre dates to 1550 as a winery, but the chateau itself was built in the 1200 on the ruins of an old fort on limestone.
In the heart of Pic Saint Loup, a mild winter followed by a rainy Spring and later, a mild fall allowed for a perfectly ripe harvest. This rosé is not one to be lightly dismissed! Serious and balanced, it offers good minerality and earthiness.
Salmon pink in hue, it’s a blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Cinsault. The resulting wine offers notes of cherry, raspberry and melon, and pairs well with dishes such as roast chicken. It has 13.5 abv and a suggested retail price of around $15.
We like rosés year-round and this one is a good choice for any time you want a delicious taste of Languedoc rosé!
