Calmel Joseph Amstramgram Ceres Rosé Magnum
PRODUCER: Founded in 1995, Calmel & Joseph is a maison de négoce specializing in Languedoc-Roussillon wines from private wineries from across the region. Over the years, we have built close personal relationships with a large number of growers from all appellations. Convinced of the extraordinary potential of this region, oenologist, Laurent Calmel, and Jerome Joseph work together on the vinification, blending and ageing of wines with the common purpose of demonstrating the little known yet unique quality of these Mediterranean terroirs.
WINEMAKING: The harvest dates are chosen in order to obtain perfect balance. The Cinsault and the Mourvèdre grapes are picked according to their vivacity, whilst the Grenache is harvested at optimum ripeness. Total destemming is followed by maceration at 15°C for two hours then temperature controlled fermentation at 16°C. Fine lees are added at the moment of racking before alcoholic fermentation to add structure and complexity to the palate. There is no malolactic fermentation.
TASTING NOTE: Exquisitely pale pink. The nose is deliciously fruity in notes of exotic fruit such as mango and pink grapefruit underlined spice. Smooth and beautifully balanced, the palate offers notes of white fleshed fruit culminating in a menthol fresh finish with a touch of cinnamon.
