K&L Notes

Château Viranel is a small family-run domaine located in the picturesque Languedoc appellation of Saint-Chinian. The domaine's rosé is perfect for an apéritif but is also ideal served throughout a meal because of its richness and volume on the palate. Pretty rose petal color. An intense nose of summer fruits (blackberry, raspberry, black currant) and a fresh and fruity attack. The finish is elegant and long. A truly gastronomic rosé from 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache Noir and 20% Cinsault, made by drawing off for Grenache and Syrah. It is an extremely versatile rosé to enjoy with a plethora of dishes including summer barbecues, salads, tagine with prunes, paella, Andalusian gazpacho, terrine of spring vegetables, beef carpaccio, stuffed vegetables, roasted peppers, salmon cakes, ratatouille and many other delicious dishes to match your culinary expertise!

    Saint-Chinian is certainly one of the oldest winemaking regions in the Languedoc, dating back to the Roman era and the very dawn of French viticulture. The deeply-colored schist soils found in the north tend to produce rich, fruity wines, resulting in rosés of ineluctable charm and expansive red berry flavors of raspberry, red currants and bright cherries, the perfect complement to a wide array of Mediterranean dishes from fresh seafood to grilled meats and summer vegetables. There really are few gastronomical barriers to your enjoyment of this delightful wine!
