Terroir & Vines:
Château Grand Boise benefits from a very unique terroir, with its high altitude vineyards ranging from 300 m to 650 m alt. at the highest point. 80 parcels, spread over 500 hectares of land, representing 34 hectares of planted vines. 80% of the vines are north facing, planted on clay and limestone soils. The other 20% are south facing and planted on pink marble soils. A troop of 300 sheep, honey bees, horses and chickens, have recently joined the team to contribute to our philosophy of natural farming. To preserve this delicate balance, our vines are certified organic since 2010. This exceptional terroir brings freshness, depth and complexity to our wines.

Winemaking:
Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault are carefully selected at ideal maturity and picked early in the morning.
Château Grand Boise Rosé is made from Direct Press, and entirely fermented in stainless steel tanks. A rigorous temperature controlled vinification preserve aromas and freshness in the wine. Blending and bottling are done in late February.

Tasting notes:
The resulting wine displays delightful and refreshing aromas of crushed berries blended with floral and mineral notes. 2014 vintage offers a very complex wine with a fresh and long finish. Its bouquet is rich, floral, with delicious notes of grapefruit, gooseberries and white pepper.

Food & Wine pairings:
This rosé will match perfectly with all types of cuisine.
Best with flavourful Mediterranean-cuisine, lightly spiced or exotic.
