‘From the Tank’ is a collaboration between Jenny & François Selections and various small, natural artisan winemakers that focus on expressing their terrior. Jenny & François Selections is a New York based wine distributor founded in 2000. They focus on small vineyard wines and “winemakers who work like artisans, crafting a different wine each year. They do not impose a preconceived taste on their wines, but look to be surprised by what nature gives”.
Estate: This ‘From the Tank’ Rosé was made exclusively for Jenny & François Selections by Domaine de la Patience, located in the Costières de Nîmes in southeastern France. The family estate takes it name from “La Patience”, a wild aromatic herb that makes its home in the vineyards. Christophe Aguilar farms the 60 hectares of vines, the very same soil that his grandfather respectfully farmed 50 years ago.
Winemaking: The vineyards are certified organic. Grapes were sourced from 21 year old Syrah vines and 40 year old Grenache vines, then aged in concrete vat with minimum sulfur added.
Tasting Notes: Coral pink in colour with sunny aromas of peach and honey. Bright and light, with peach, strawberry and nectarine flavours culminating in a crisp finish of grapefruit notes.
80% Grenache, 20% Syrah
Vin de Pays du Pont du Gard
