Great New Rosés for Summer!
“The Sainte Eulalie estate is situated above the Roman village of La Livinière at the heart of the Minervois appellation in the south of France. Winemaker Isabelle Coustal uses the estate’s vines of cinsault as a base and adds young vines of syrah with a little carignan and grenache. This is a delicious, full-flavoured dry rosé with a whiff of violet. Refreshing chilled on its own or with food.”
