Tasting notes: Delicious ripe peach and melon, with a twist of pink grapefruit zest and the freshness of a sea breeze. An enchantingly pale, copper coloured rosé - even more sophisticated looking than its chic cousins from Provence - with a lovely weight and texture across the length of the palate and a dusting of Southern French spice.
Food match: Pair with a sunny terrace and a slice of pissaladière. A perfect apéritif, either on its own or served with slices of saucisson and fresh gougères. Also, the perfect choice to drink with summery salads, soups au pistou, or a wide range of simply prepared fresh fish and shellfish dishes, be it barbecued sea bream, a plat de fruit de Mer or sushi, sashimi and tempura.

About Château l'Ermitage :
"Château l'Ermitage was founded in the 11th Century by the hermits of Sainte Cécile d'Estagel Abbay and it made wine for pilgrims en route to Santiago de Compostella. The estate encompasses 80 hectares of sunny, south-facing vineyards planted on sandstone soils and benefitting from Mediterranean breezes that cool the vines in the summer."
