Le Grand Cros from Provence, the home of rosé, comprises predominantly Mourvèdre, with small amounts of Grenache and Syrah. This is described as a textured and complex rosé, with ageing potential. Winemaker Julian Faulkner said: “2015 was the ideal vintage for Mourvèdre. Every four to five years we will have ideal conditions for ripening Mourvèdre. The cuvée will be made according to vintage, so depending on how 2016 turns out maybe we will do it again.” There are 6,000 bottles.
