Bijou Cuvée Jolie
AOP Languedoc Cabrières
40% Grenache, 50% Cinsault and 10% Syrah
Cuvée Jolie is inspired by Picasso and our love for art. “Ma Jolie “ was both a popular French song of the early twentieth century and the nickname he gave his lover, Eva Gouel. One of the first Cubist paintings. Ma Jolie combines elements of music, food and love in abstract and alluring form.
Viticulture and Vinification
The grapes are sourced from low-yielding (47hl/ha) old vines on the sloping hillsides of Cabrières. The area lies on old volcanic soils that are composed of 70% schist, which helps create high-quality grapes with great structure and freshness.
The grapes for Cuvée Jolie are carefully selected by hand, de-stemmed and then gently crushed. Indigenous yeasts are used to ferment the wine for 15 to 18 days in temperature controlled stainless vats. Fermentation takes place at low temperatures of 14-16 ° to preserve the delicate fruit flavours. Each grape variety is harvested and vinified separately and then finally blended together to create a super example of Southern French Rosé.
