CHATEAU
Originally, the Château de la Selve was a fortified house first on the frontier of the Empire and then of the Kingdom of France. Today, the producer grows wine with respect for the environment and tries to let the soil express itself. In this perspective, He is always looking for more vivacious grounds for the vine to grow on (I adopted the principles of biodynamic), and, in the cellar for always purer wines that let as much as possible the various lots express their specificities and unique characteristics.
A team of 7 people all year long plus a seasonal staff of a dozen people who work from the winter solstice (late december) to the summer solstice (late june), 40 hectares and 6 different grape varieties: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Merlot and Cabernet-Sauvignon for red wines and Viognier for white wines, an organic and biodynamic culture with no chemical fertilizer, no weed-killer and no insecticide since 2002 and the obtention of the ECOCERT certification in 2008; a very specific attention given to the balance and the life of soils; a naturally low yield (around 38 hl/hectare); choices that make it possible to extract as much minerality and expression from the soil and give vivacious wines a high delicacy and a subtle complexity

50% Syrah, 35% Grenache, 10% Cinsault and 5% Viognier
Yeast: indigenous (naturally present on the grape) One only mechanic action: pressing
Vinified 80% in Bordeaux barrels and 20% tank
6 months ageing on lees in Bordeaux barrels
Unfined and not filtered
This may be the best rosé in the world. Pure, charming subtle red berry flavors, perfectly balanced acidity, distinctive and a hint of orange blossom. Aged in ex-Chateau d'Yquem oak casks. Unlike most roses, l'Audacieuse gets better with time!
Gault et Millau : 16/20
RVF : 156/20
