Winemaker Notes:

It’s an invitation to enjoy the essential aspects of life: family and friends, sharing and pleasure.

It’s made from a rare blend. Grenache from volcanic terroir and Roussanne planted in the middle of the Mediterranean  garrigue, or wilderness.

1701 is a wine made without compromise in limited quantity.

We favor elegance over exuberance. From the vineyard to the cellar, at each moment, we do everything to preserve this balance.

It is a wine for sharing.

Rosé is our emblematic color. 1701 is recognized by the press as one of the best rosés in the world.

 

Tamlyn Currin of Jancis Robinson 16.5/20 Points | Creamy, smooth, blood orange and white strawberries. A touch of vanilla. Cherry blossom and satsuma. Orange zest. A light press of savoury mid-palate weight. More serious than their other rosés but fresh and vibrant with a distinctly Provençal profile. You could, of course, drink this now. But I think it would benefit from another six to 12 months in bottle.  - Jancis Robinson 16.5+


Description

A micro production rose, Jancis Robinson calls “The real aristocrat of Languedoc rose emerged as Domaine Montrose”.  1701 is a single cuvée made from a rare blend of Grenache grown on volcanic soil and Roussanne planted in the middle of the Mediterranean garrigue or wilderness.

Explosive cranberry, strawberry, and watermelon fruit on the nose and palate, with firm acidity and a dose of minerality. Silky richness in the mouth, with good complexity and extended length on the palate.

A great sipper, this works well as an aperitif or with light fare.
