Description

Our previous vintages of Bee Pink have been a sell out and it’s now a firm favourite for our wine club members. Only 1800 bottles have been made this vintage so you’ll need to be quick!
It’s made in the Provence style – very pale in colour, but with plenty of delicate fruit flavours.

Eyes

An attractive delicate pale pink

Nose

Aromas of citrus fruit and white peach, with a hint of redcurrants and strawberries

Mouth

Bone dry and very refreshing, with crisp, mouthwatering freshness, and charming summer pudding red fruit flavours.

Body

light

Winemaking Notes

Our friend Jean-Marc Lafage (who owns Chateau St Roch, near Maury, where we make our red wine) is one of the Roussillon’s finest rosé producers. He has allowed us to work with some of his Grenache, Grenache Gris and Syrah grapes to produce our own Bee Pink.

Growing Conditions

After a damp spring, 2018 was a warm year with an extremely hot period for a couple of weeks in July, but there was enough groundwater to keep the vines healthy throughout the summer, and to produce an abundant crop of delicious grapes.

"utterly glorious Côtes du Roussillon rosé from the rising star of the region: Domaine of the Bee. It’s the palest of pale pinks and blended largely from juicy, succulent Grenache with just a hint of spicy Syrah to lift it. I absolutely lapped it up"
