La Vielle Ferme Rose
Pretty pale-pink colour, with soft undertones. Fresh and very aromatic nose, this wine has a delicate bouquet with notes of red fruit, flowers and citrus fruit. Nice balance between sweetness and acidity in the mouth. There are notes of fresh fruit, and great length. This 2016 wine is fresh and balanced, a beautiful expression of this beautiful vintage with lots of fruit!
10-12°C on hors-d'oeuvres, cold buffets, tomato salads, grilled meat, ... and other summer lunches.
Jean Pierre Perrin established La Vieille Ferme over 35 years ago, when he chose to produce an inexpensive, straightforward Rhône wine to sell by direct mail to French wine lovers. He used the same grape varieties in similar proportions to those planted at the family's Château de Beaucastel, in a similar vinification process. The result was an immediate success in France, a wine of character and style in keeping with its Beaucastel heritage.
Initially, Jean Pierre made only Côtes du Rhône, but steeply rising grape prices in 1976 caused him to switch to Côtes du Ventoux and eventually to produce a white wine from the mountainous Côtes du Luberon. La Vieille Ferme was introduced to the United States in 1970. The response was an immediate, overwhelming acceptance and an outpouring of critical acclaim from eminently knowledgeable critics who recognized La Vieille Ferme for its consistently fine quality and value.
Beautiful light pink color, with pastel highlights. This lively and balanced wine offers a beautiful freshness, with delicate red fruits, flowers and citrus aromas. On the palate, this very aromatic wine shows fresh fruits notes with a great persistence.
