Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, May 2012
taster image
Produced from the oldest and greatest vines of Grenache and Vermentino at the domaine, Garrus is another expression of rosé. Though 2010 is an almost unimaginable step up in intensity and complexity from Les Clans, it remains balanced, poised and incredibly racy. The 2006, its first vintage, was deemed worthy enough to serve the Queen, who drank it at a charity event in June 2007.

Côtes de Provence

France's most extensive appellation, the Côtes de Provence stretches from Toulon in the west to near Cannes in the east. The vineyards run from the sun-baked Mediterranean coast up into the Alpine foothills with their cooling influence. Rose wine accounts for four fifths of Côtes de Provence production. Formerly a drink for holidays only, consumption of rose is on the rise in both France and the UK and and the wines are more and more serious. Typically Cinsaut and Grenache are the most popular grape varieties. There is also a renewed focus on producing higher quality red wine by incorporating Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah into the blends, although combined they can only represent 30% of the blend. Plantings of indigenous white varieties are also increasing especially in the coastal areas.
