Languedoc-based Domaine du Météore has launched a new organic rosé to the UK market

The new wine, released as an AOP Faugères, is a blend of Cinsault (50%), Grenache Noir (40%) and Mourvèdre (10%) from the 2019 vintage.

It’s described as a being ‘pale… both expressive and delicate with aromas of raspberry, strawberry, and grapefruit with a touch of white pepper’. The producers says that the overall impression is of a ‘juicy, harmonious and elegant’ wine.

The fruit for this wine comes from vines grown within and around the 300 meter-wide meteorite crater which gives the domaine its name.

The wine is available through the producers’ website domainedumeteore.com, while a variety of the domaine’s wines can be sourced through Stone Vine & Sun, Haynes Hanson & Clark, and Les Caves de Pyrene.

RRP £15.50, domainedumeteore.com
