Flora Rosé 2013 Magnum (150cl) Coteaux d’Aix en Provence - Domaine de La Brillane

This wine is out of stock

£ 24.00 tax incl.

Flora is the high end Rosé of Domaine de la Brillane, and it is a Gourmet bottle. It has a bit more body and is more fruity then the first one. Old vines of Grenache are part of the blend, giving it elegant aromas of red berries, but it is still fresh and mineral as well. Very nice if you are looking for a rosé that is a bit more sophisticated than usual.

A word about the domain
The domain has been created by a former British banker in 2000, Rupert Birch, who decided to change life and realise his dream. He first bought 12 hectares of vines ideally exposed to the sun, and built the whole domain around them, producing natural wines from the start. The domain has then been bought by Corinne and Emmanuel Gensollen in 2010, who have since then carried on producing delicate wines in the respect of the nature.
