The 18 vintage of Le Petit Moulin de L’enclos Rose is one of the most accessible wines we have had in a long time! It’s easy drinking, not sophisticated summers day bottle.
Domaine de Castelnau’s origins date back to the 13th Century when it was the property of the Seigneurs (Lords) de Guers. Situated between Béziers and Montpellier, Castelnau-de-Guers is one of six communes that make up the appellation. Now owned by Christophe Muret, Domaine de Castelnau is one of only 20 independent domaines in the appellation. This natural lagoon is one of the finest sources for shellfish in southern France and particularly renown for commercial cultivation of oysters. Languedoc locals and tourists agree that the citrus and mineral characteristics of well-made Le Petit Moulin L’enclos Rose make it the perfect accompaniment to les Huîtres de Bouzigues, the basin’s famous bivalves. The rich marine fauna and flora of L’Etang de Thau also make it a desirable habitat for migrating birds including grey herons and pink flamingos, the latter adorning the label of Domaine de Castelnau’s Cuvée L’Etang.
Le Petit Moulin de L’enclos Rose has lovely soft raspberry notes. It’s very well structured with layers of complexity, brilliant acid levels integrated with the fruit. This is an amazing for a rose, especially at this price!! The perfect pairing for shellfish, or a summer BBQ.
