Felicette, Rosé, Languedoc and South West, France, 2020

Producer Profile

Wines inspired by the spirit of place - ‘L’esprit de lieu’. The wines of Terres Fidèles are created in the Roussillon and surrounding regions, a place of remarkable stories where layers of history and cultures are embedded in the raw and wild landscape.

Authentic, crafted small batch wines. Wines of the wilds. Old vine Grenache, Carignan, Malbec, Cinsault, Viognier and more. Wines to share..., some of which, namely Felicette, Mont Rocher and Montsablé we have been proudly producing for some time.

Viticulture

The vineyards for Fidèle Soleilla are perched high in the dramatic hills and terraces above the Vallée d’Agly with a unique character of its own. The famed black schist is interspersed with pockets of limestone from the higher slopes, combining the richness and power that is typical of Maury with a fresher, more finely defined character. Heady and opulent but somehow fresh and refined. Ying and yang, darkness and light, power and grace. A very special site making very special wine.

Winemaking

The wine benefits from a period of skin contact and maceration. Pressing of the grapes is carried out in a pneumatic press with separation of free-run juice from pressed must. Cold static must settling then a settling on the fine lees with stirring to highlight the richness of the wine. The wines are then racked off the lees to prevent malolactic fermentation.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

A pale salmon pink wine, refreshing and fruity, with delicate red fruits such as strawberry and raspberry.
