Fleurs de Prairie – Rosé of Grenache Noir + Syrah + Carignan + Cinsault + Mourvèdre; Languedoc, France; 2023 

 June 5, 2024

The Languedoc region, where the vine’s culture goes back to Roman times, is surrounded by mountains and bordered by the Mediterranean Sea. As a result, the terroir is varied, with limestone hills, herb-filled shrubland, and sediment near the river. The Mediterranean climate of long sunny days and soft winds allows for Fleurs de Prairie’s grapes to ripen to perfection.

The vineyard is located in Southeastern France on the Mediterranean coast giving the vineyards a vast array of soil types from sandy, limestone, clay, shale, and pebble.

43% Grenache Noir, 40% Syrah, 9% Carignan, 5% Cinsault, 3% Mourvèdre were harvested between August and September, and are directly pressed to ensure a light, fresh style. Grapes are fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks and fermented separately to achieve the best characteristic of each varietal.

Fleurs de Prairie is a pale salmon color, with delicate flavors of red fruit and lemon, and a subtle note of tropical fruits on the finish. Its bright, refreshing acidity makes it a perfect companion with a meal or as an aperitif.

Pair this light-bodied wine with lighter dishes, use the fruit flavors to pair with summer fruits and vegetables, or enjoy with fresh fish or lighter proteins roasted with fresh herbs.
