A special cuvée from Domaine des Campaux, MétalRose is produced in very limited quantity and housed in a metallic "pink gold" bottle, with a unique and refined style. Crafted with detail, the bottle of this special vintage is accompanied by a stainless steel plate with the logo of Domaine des Campaux.
Run by the Naveau family since 1934, Domaine des Campaux is one of the most beautiful estates producing Provence-style rosé wines with a timeless style. Located in the heart of the Môle Valley, in the Massif des Maures of the Var, Domaine des Campaux overlooks a vineyard of 34 hectares with excellent southern exposure, planted in shallow shale soils.
Strictly adhering to environmentally friendly practices, Domaine des Campaux plants grasses between the rows of vines, using natural green manure and mechanical plowing, without any herbicides.
A top-of-the-range cuvee produced in A.O.C Côtes de Provence, the MétalRose 2017 is the result of a very specific blend, designed to transcribes all the unique characteristics of the terroir and grape varieties included, all the while illustrating the great know-how of the Domaine des Campaux. The blend includes 65% Mourvèdre, 18% Syrah from vines aged 40 years, and around 17% Grenache from 60 year old vines with traditional goblet pruning.
After a nighttime harvest aimed to preserve the aromatic expression of the berries and their organoleptic qualities, the grapes were pressed directly. Careful cold settling was then carried out, followed by slow fermentation at temperatures between 17 and 19 °C in 600L oak half-casks before the wine was matured on lees with regular stirring.
In the glass, the rosé cuvée MétalRose 2017 presents a very pale, shiny dress and fleshy colour. The nose offers a complex and seductive aromatic palette, with notes of exotic fruits, like sweet mango with a spicy touch of cinnamon. A slight smoky note completes the aromatic profile. On the palate, the frank attack is full of rich flavours. Delicious mango and spices evolves into a floral finish, especially notes of rose. Structured and full of life, the strength of the old vines is perfectly reflected in this rosé, which leaves a pleasant softness and persistent freshness on the finish. A gourmet rosé ready to be savored now, the MétalRose 2017 wine will evolve perfectly until 2019.
