Le Pive Gris

Rosé

France

Languedoc

Description

Nestled in the wilderness of the Camargue national park, Domaine le Pive is comprised of 113+ acres of organically farmed vines, with a modern, state of the art winery and historic Romanesque chapel at its center.

The plentiful sun, marine winds and distinctive sandy soils (“sables sauvages”) result in fresh, aromatic, personality-filled wines.

Tasting Notes: Pale in color, but offering plenty of aromatic intensity, with loads of strawberry, raspberry fruit, a touch of earth, spice and mineral character, and a hint of banana. Bone dry. Finishes long and clean, with great freshness.

Serve With: Excellent on its own and with fish/shellfish, this versatile wine has surprising intensity and will also stand up to more substantial meals (BBQ, grilled meats). A great summer picnic wine!
