There's a compellingly rocky core to the nose of this bottling, which is redolent with black raspberry, flinty smoke, crushed hibiscus, rose petals and an earthy streak. The palate is crunchy with fresh cranberry skins and other red fruits, and jam-packed with mineral tones of turned earth and pulverized stones. It goes down tremendously easy but with elegance and intrigue.
- Our Clubs
After selective sorting of the harvested grapes before vatting on a sorting table, the bunches of grapes are vatted whole (no de-stalking or crushing).
They are vinified using traditional Beaujolais methods, where the bunches are kept whole throughout vatting, which lasts 7 to 8 days.
In this way we craft a ruby-coloured Beaujolais-Villages with pleasant red fruit aromas (raspberry, red currant, strawberry). The tannins are supple and blend in beautifully. This fruity wine will be tasty all the time of day.
T Elenteny Imports
"The 2020 vintage of Roselana is a completely dry and vinous rosé - just like all its predecessors. A wine of sensual refinement and romance, yet bold and glamorous. You can call it pretty, but it'll be an understatement to the seriousness it carries in its bones. It's a wine that glides and vibrates, carrying intricate details in both its freshness and its power."
"Produced from equal parts of these varietals, the fruit for this wine comes from Chidaine’s estate-grown, bio-dynamically farmed vineyards located just north of the Cher river between the villages of Montrichard & Chissay-en-Touraine.
The nose of gooseberries has some some floral notes is followed by a medium-full wine with a chalky texture. Excellent acidity and beautiful tension bring up the solid mineral core. Very refreshing, but surprisingly complex, this is a perennial favorite where supply never is sufficient for demand. Amazing value and very food friendly!"
Sacred Thirst Selections
Floral and delicate with a very subtle smoky quality. It’s Provençal-esque in style, with a crisp delicious citrus finish and a wonderful pink-ness (think watermelon and bubble gum without being sweet), plus minerality to give the wine depth and a long finish.
This wine marks the origin of the domain. My grandfather purchased his first plots of vines in 1937, situated in the locality named Le Tremblay. Nowadays, this wine is a blend from several localities named Les Greneriers, Les Burdelines, Les Pérelles, Champs de Cour, Les Brussellions and Aux Caves.
This wine is refined and sophisticated.
