2021 Vin de France Rosé “Le Gris”

Domaine d’Aupilhac

While he previously made a deep, rustic rosé of Mourvèdre and Cinsault, Sylvain Fadat of Domaine d’Aupilhac decided to change things up for the 2021 vintage. He crafted a very pale rosé made from the gentle, direct pressing of two pink-skinned grapes, Grenache Gris and some Clairette Rose (Carignan Gris will soon enter the mix, once the young vines are of age). This gris de gris is more delicate in color and perfume than its predecessor, but it still packs a lot of flavor. The grapes soak up the Languedoc’s sunshine until harvest, then the juice ferments spontaneously (including malolactic) and spends a few months on its fine lees until an unfiltered bottling. Bright and lively, with ample flesh and layers of texture, Sylvain’s new rosé is authentic as they come.

About Languedoc-Roussillon

map of Languedoc-Roussillon

Ask wine drinkers around the world, and the word “Languedoc” is sure to elicit mixed reactions. On the one hand, the region is still strongly tied to its past as a producer of cheap, insipid bulk wine in the eyes of many consumers. On the other hand, it is the source of countless great values providing affordable everyday pleasure, with an increasing number of higher-end wines capable of rivaling the best from other parts of France.

While there’s no denying the Languedoc’s checkered history, the last two decades have seen a noticeable shift to fine wine, with an emphasis on terroir. Ambitious growers have sought out vineyard sites with poor, well draining soils in hilly zones, curbed back on irrigation and the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, and looked to balance traditional production methods with technological advancements to craft wines with elegance, balance, and a clear sense of place. Today, the overall quality and variety of wines being made in the Languedoc is as high as ever.

Shaped like a crescent hugging the Mediterranean coast, the region boasts an enormous variety of soil types and microclimates depending on elevation, exposition, and relative distance from the coastline and the cooler foothills farther inland. While the warm Mediterranean climate is conducive to the production of reds, there are world-class whites and rosés to be found as well, along with stunning dessert wines revered by connoisseurs for centuries.

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
