Casimir 2016



Our rosé Casimir is made with grenache grapes hand-picked from fifty year old vines. To avoid oxidation, we don't destem and we press rapidly in our pneumatic press. After 24 hours of fining, the juice is vinified at 18°- 20°C using only indigenous yeasts. Bottling takes place as soon as possible, to preserve freshness and fruit.

IGP Gard 14% alcohol

About the name...

Casimir, alas no one can tell me his surname, was a Camargue cowboy killed over a hundred years ago on his horse Rocinante whilst herding bulls through the streets of Aubais.

Of such acts of derring-do local legends are made and on the centenary of his demise, I named my rosé Casimir in homage. I've always admired those who take physical risks to bring enjoyment to others - jump jockeys, bull herders and winemakers spring to mind. I can only hope that people remember the pleasure they had drinking my wine, as I no longer have horses.

Tasting Notes

Casimir is made with demanding wine drinkers in mind. It has surprising length and expression of fruit, and can hold its own with any dish.
