Tetu, Grenache Rosé, Maury, France 2017
30% Grenache and 70% Syrah
Têtu was born of a shared devotion to Maury’s old-vine Grenache and is a collaboration between ourselves and American distributer Kimberly Jones. Working alongside local growers in premium sites with vines over 60 years of age we have created a new cuvee that displays all the complexities of the local terroir with finesse, depth and old-vine concentration. Têtu literally translates as obstinate or unyielding. The Catalan donkey or Ruc Catalá on the label serves to remind us of these stubborn old vines persevering in the toughest of soils and harshest of climates to deliver wines of unique style and expression.
Pale pink color, sweet nose of candy, very red fruit on the palate, a slight acidity and a low alcohol content (12 °) give it a refreshing balance.
