Domaine la Croix des Marchands Gaillac Rosé

 New Selection! This rosé blend from the Gaillac region in southwestern France is fresh-tasting and fruity – made from Syrah and Gamay, it has both lighter and heavier fruit flavors. It’s great as aperitif or with salads, seafood, and poultry. Plus, it's certified sustainable by Terra Vitis, a French agriculture organization.

Domaine la Croix des Marchands Gaillac Rosé
 
About This Wine:
 The village of Montans was a crossroad for the pottery trade from Roman times. It was also an important area for wine production, and the wine amphoras produced in the area (and presumably filled with local wine) have been found as far away as Northern Scotland and Southern Spain. The village is part of the Gaillac AOC in the Languedoc. Jerome Bézios produces wines under two labels: Domaine la Croix des Marchands, a tribute to the traveling merchants of the past, and Château Palvié, a subsection of the property named for the family that owned the property before the French Revolution. First Vine is the first importer to bring M. Bézios’s wines to the U.S.

The Gaillac region of France produces some Bordeaux-style wines, and also wines with local varietals, some of which have been grown for centuries. The Gaillac Rosé is 50% Syrah, 50% Gamay – Gamay is the principal red grape of wines made in the Beaujolias region. It’s not often found in rosés made elsewhere, but adds a wonderful lighter fruitiness. The Syrah adds structure in addition to darker fruits.
