Gassier, Gris de Grenache Rose 2019Regular price $15.00 Save $-15.00
Variety: Grenache and Mourvèdre
Michel Gassier is a man of many intricate traits. Michel and his wife, Tina, form the identity of Domaine Gassier, believing that their craft should come from a place of teamwork. He considers himself a “peasant-researcher.” His peasant side is derived from his genes while the researcher part reflects his own sense of character. Clearly inspired by the terroir of his vineyards and intervening as little as possible, inspiration comes from many of the international winemakers he meets. He takes notes from other winemaking methods and blending styles, consistently furthering himself to learn more and more.
This classic Rhone rosé is a blend of regional varieties, Grenache and the smallest hint of Mourvedre. This bottle merges two methods of rosé production—the saigneé and the direct press techniques. This wine has no added sulphites; therefore, meant to be drunk young.
