Adrien Berlioz, Savoie Mondeuse, Cuvée Rosa 2021 - 0,75L
Cuvée Rosa is made from Mondeuse grapes grown on the "La Ravinée" plot in Arbin. The nose has complex aromas of red and black fruits, violet and sweet spices (clove, cinnamon). The palate is surprisingly energetic and mineral. The tannins are remarkably melted.
Adrien Berlioz, cousin of Gilles Berlioz (Domaine Partagé) settled in 2006 in Chignin, Savoie, where he founded the Cellier des Cray. The first years, he cultivates the vines he inherited from his family. Then the vineyard extends to make today 5,5 hectares, composed of 13 plots.
The Savoyard grape varieties (mondeuse, persan, douce noire, bergeron jacquère, altesse and malvoisie) are cultivated on clay-limestone soils and the slopes can reach 50%. Hand work is greatly favored in this estate certified in Organic and Biodynamic Agriculture since 2012.
In the cellars, human intervention is minimized: action of indigenous yeasts, harvest more or less destemmed, maturing in demi-muids from Ganevat, little sulfites.
The wines of the Cellier des Cray are pure and elegant. Great wines of Savoy!
