Domaine Girard Garriguette Cabernet Franc Rosé: A Burst of Summer Sunshine in Every Sip

Uncork a bottle of Domaine Girard Garriguette Cabernet Franc Rosé, and be instantly transported to the sun-drenched vineyards of Languedoc, France. This delightful pink wine is an embodiment of summer, bursting with fresh aromas and flavours that will tantalise your taste buds.

A Captivating Bouquet

The first impression of Domaine Girard Garriguette Rosé is an explosion of freshness. Vibrant aromas of red berries take centre stage, reminiscent of ripe strawberries, raspberries, and a touch of redcurrant. Hints of citrus zest add a touch of vibrancy, while subtle herbal notes, characteristic of the surrounding garrigue (Mediterranean shrubland), lend a touch of complexity.

A Refreshing Symphony on the Palate

The first sip is a revelation. The wine boasts a lively acidity, a hallmark of grapes grown at altitude. This acidity cuts beautifully through the juicy fruit flavours, leaving a clean and invigorating sensation on the tongue. The red berry notes from the nose translate beautifully onto the palate, offering a delightful mix of sweet and tart. Unlike some overly sweet rosés, the subtle tannins from the Cabernet Franc grapes add a touch of structure, creating a well-balanced and satisfying drinking experience. The finish is crisp and lingering, leaving you wanting another sip.

Expertly Crafted for Pure Enjoyment

Domaine Girard's dedication to quality shines through in every bottle of Garriguette Rosé. The grapes are meticulously sourced from a parcel of over 20-year-old vines planted near Alaigne. These vines benefit from cooling mountain breezes and clay-limestone soils, contributing to the wine's exceptional freshness and minerality. Sustainable viticulture practices, with no herbicides or synthetic fertilisers used, ensure the grapes retain their purity and full flavour potential.
