Of the entire John Legend line of wine, the Rose has a particular expression of its appellation. I love his Napa Cabernet and the Napa red blend, both great examples of their pedigree. The Rose expresses the crisp, clean flavors we have come to know from Provence Rose.
The grapes were selected from vineyards in the Montagne Sainte Victoire region of Provence in France, an area where stony and limestone soils bring out the fresh flavor notes and sweet aromas in the wine. The grapes are directly and gently pressed to ensure the pale color and protect the inherent finesse of the varietals. Fermentation at cool temperatures keeps the freshness and further develops varietal aromatics. Finally, the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks on fine lees to maintain the brightness and enhance its elegance. Appellation: Cotes de Provence varietal: 60% Grenache, 25% Cinsault, 15% Syrah. Aging: Stainless steel tank.
Our LVE Rose is a brilliant, pale pink color. In the glass, it's highly aromatic with delicate notes of peach blossom, raspberry and apricot. On the palate, crisp light notes of fresh picked strawberry and white nectarine lead to an elegant, lengthy and a mineral finish.
