Atelier Raspail  bottle

Atelier Raspail

Rosé, 2019

Charles Bieler’s first winemaking experiences were in the south of France. It’s only fitting that his Ateliers Raspail Rose takes its cues from Provence. Bieler ran over 30 small fermentations to help the fruit and floral aromas shine in this crisp rose. Expect delicate aromas of raspberry and peach, along with lavender and a citrusy kick.

Profile

Don’t be fooled by the pretty pink color: this is a serious wine. The delicate layers of fruit in this bottle were carefully constructed during over 30 small batch fermentations using dozens of different yeasts. The result is a bottle that is as complex as it is beautiful. It’s full of ripe summer berries paired with a creamy lush texture.

TASTING TIP

If you’re struggling to identify aromas in a wine, try starting with broad categories. Is there fruit? Is it citrus fruit, orchard fruit, or a berry? See if you can distinguish the berry aromas in this wine, like strawberry and raspberry.
