Domaine de L'Ostal Rose
The finish offers a pleasant touch of sweetness and lingering aromas of fresh pomegranate.
- Languedoc-Roussillon, France
The Domaine de L’Ostal is situated in one of the finest terroirs of the Languedoc region and produces wines that infer the rich, powerful and noble terroirs of the local region. Domaine de L’Ostal owes its name to the term ostal meaning both ''house'' and ''family group'' in the ancient Occitan language. Its name is loaded with meaning and history for its owners. The domaine was purchased in 2002 by Jean-Michel Cazes, the owner of Château Lynch-Bages in Pauillac.
Since 2011, Domaine de L’Ostal Rosé has been made from equal quantities of Grenache (50%) and Syrah (50%) grown on the coolest terroirs of the domaine and the Pays d'Oc region. In order to obtain its beautiful pale pink colour, the grapes are pressed immediately at low temperatures in order to reduce the extraction of phenolic and colour compounds.
Very pale, clear and delicate pink in hue. The highly complex and delicate nose offers a subtle combination of rose petals and pomegranate. On the palate, the attack is supple, light and fresh. The finish offers a pleasant touch of sweetness and lingering aromas of fresh pomegranate.
