The "Cuisse de Nymphe" is a type of rose which is of a very pale pink, almost mauve colour. It was brought to France at the end of 16th century from Crimea. It name was “Rosier blanc royal”. This Rosé which is named in honour of the rose is a Grenache noir.
The aromas are fresh with mineral notes balancing the overtly fuity character of maraschino cherries, apricots, eucalyptus, raspberry and brambles. This rosé tastes very fresh with nice minerality and a touch of weight that balances its strawberry and orange zests notes. The roundness is driven by a smacking acidity. Flavours of tart fruit on the finish. This is a dry, berried wine that pairs beautifully with a plate of prosciutto and ripe summer tomatoes.

Intense nose - very fruity, strawberry, pomegranate, raspberry, blackberry with rose petals at the end.Smooth and balanced palate, with a textured mouth feel. Long persistence on the finish with notes of cherry in the aftertaste. Delicious!
Intense, fresh pink colour. Aromas of red fruits (strawberries, cherries, raspberries), but the number of aromas it gives off is never ending. Balanced, fresh and fruity. Its palate will probably have you hooked.
Lovely pale pink in colour. The fresh nose is composed of citrus aromas such as orange and grapefruit complemented by a full,spicy and fleshy palate with refreshing acidity.

Very refined dry rose, with an attractive floral aroma, redcurrant fruit, and excellent length in the mouth.
