Rose, Le Clos des Jarres
Le Clos des Jarres was created in 2010 by Vivien Hemelsdael, it is a small, 12 hectare domain specialising in Organic Viticulture, spread across the communes of Laure and Caunes Minervois, in the foothills of the Black Mountains.
The domain produces red, rose and white AOC Minervois wines, and white and red Vin de Pays (IGP) Coteaux de Peyriac.
Vivien Hemelsdael, who has taken the helm from his parents, local vine cultivators, tends to his vineyards and nurtures his wines with the utmost respect for the plants and their soils, to create wines that are complex and brimming with life.

Viticulture & Winemaking Biodynamic. An unconventional method in making a rosé - the Vermentino are pressed directly and the Grenache are destemmed, whole berries are thrown into the white juice. After two weeks of co-fermentation the wine is pressed of. Finished with low intervention and no added S02.
Grapes Vermentino, Grenache
Region Languedoc, France
Tasting Notes Fresh and fruity style. Full of crunchy red fruits with a generous palate. Great for those sunny afternoons!
