2018 Montfin Rosé

Corbieres, France

$27.00

Winemaker: Jerome Esteve
Vineyard/Year: Montfin / 2018

An engineer and an accountant, father and son Raymond and Jérôme Esteve purchased the Montfin property from its bankrupt owners in 2001, having fallen immediately in love with the estate’s stunning setting on the lagoon of Peyriac-de-Mer.

Certified organic since 2009, the remainder of the estate is covered in bushes of garrigue and increasing plantings of olive and oak trees, with Jérôme aiming to increase his site’s biodiversity, and some hope of the latter yielding truffles one day. The vineyard is almost entirely old vine, with plantings dating up to 80 years and producing intense, concentrated fruit. Appellation laws dictate a maximum of 50% plantings of Carignan, Corbières’ signature variety (this limit controversial among many growers!)
