The minute wine / Video. A Saint-Chinian rosé for spicy summer cuisine

Terroir known for its full-bodied and empyreumatic reds in the north, lighter on fruit aromas in the south, this Hérault appellation is moving upmarket in rosé.

Witness this cuvée from Château de Gragnos, an area of ​​17 hectares of vines, some of which are over 90 years old, rooted in the terroir of Saint-Chinian. In organic conversion, the farm extends in a setting of some 70 ha of scrubland and forests.

A blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre, this 2021 vintage seduces with the brilliance of its color with carmine highlights. The nose expresses itself on notes of ripe red fruits, crushed strawberry. This aromatic lingers on a fresh and toned mouth with a spicy touch on the finish.

These spicy notes go well with friendly exotic cuisine such as couscous or a merguez barbecue. We tasted it with a monkfish tail with saffron. The perfect match.
