Hauts De Montrouge Floc De Gascogne Rose

Floc de Gascogne is prepared according to a tradition dating back to the 17th century. This 16,5 % Vol. liqueur wine is made by adding grape juice to a young Armagnac. The selected Armagnac must be of a minimum alcohol strength of 52 % Vol
The selected grape juice is the fine quality of the  "fleur d’armagnac" obtained from unfermented wine with a minimum of 170 g. of sugar per litre, the sugar is added either before fermentation or at the very beginning of the process to ensure the ideal alcohol-sugar balance. The Floc is then aged for about 10 months in oak casks. In 1976, Floc de Gascogne was officially manufactured for the first time with Ministerial approval under this name. In 1989, the I.N.A.O. (National Controlled Origin Institute) granted the Floc de Gascogne the A.O.C. designation.

This Rose gets its aromas and colour from their fine red grapes grown on well-exposed light soils 50% of Tannat (for its purple Hue), 25% cabernet sauvignon( for the aromas of berries and blackcurrant) 20% of Cabernet franc (for the delicate fragrances of raspberry) 10% of Merlot (for the rich taste of the grape and its high sugar content).

Floc de Gascogne Rose is best enjoyed chilled as an aperitif, but also with a nice dessert with strawberries or chocolate.
