Les Gouyats Rosé
Vignobles Dubard - Vin de France
Rosé,Vin de France
70% Merlot - 30% Malbec
The Dubard Family for more than 30 years, has been the most famous producer of refreshing and reasonably priced wines in South-West France. The family members offer differing personalities of graduate oenologists, winemakers, and viticulturists who together make up a dynamic and passionate team that has been renowned in the Bergerac wine region for decades. Being receptive to their terroir, combining common sense and long experience with ceaseless wine-making and viticulture: are the founding principles on which the family has relied in their exceptional cuvées. They are also ongoing on the environmental label "HVE" (High Environmental Value).
Among the 126 acres estate of red grape varieties, 20% (young vines) are intended for the production of this Vin de France Rosé. These vines, planted at high density, are managed in simple Guyot. The alternation of one rank out of two of the tillage and grass cover reflects the search for a natural and optimal water balance. Compliance with the traditional rules of vine management and the rational use of organic amendments naturally limit the yield to about 55 hL/ha. The name "Les Gouyats" comes from the old local French to designate the mischievous boys and the current owner of the property and his cousin playing in the property were so named by their parents!
The vinification of this Rosé keeps freshness as the key word. The fruity aromas of the grapes, located mainly in the skins of the berries, are extracted preferentially at low temperatures. This is why the grapes are harvested at night and undergo on arrival at the winery a cold maceration from 6 to 12 hours. Following cold settling, fermentation is carried out at low temperatures; about 16 °C. Indeed, at each stage of winemaking, it is a question of promoting freshness in the mouth and the revelation of fruity aromas. Ageing on fine lees balances the liveliness of this rosé by communicating a round and silky texture.
Tasting notes
With a light and bright color, this wine offers a very fruity nose of wild strawberry as well as raspberry. The fleshy cherry is added to this basket of berries in a palate that is both round and fresh: enough to enjoy the beautiful days and evenings.
Food pairing
This fruity and gourmet rosé wine will perfectly accompany grilled meats as well as aperitif bites and spice dishes. Better served at a temperature of 50° F, so as to appreciate all its lightness and acidulous side. The liveliness of this wine is optimal during its first 3 years.
