Le Grand Cros Aurélia 2015

For new products - aureliaLe Grand Cros is tapping into a growing consumer demand for full-bodied, food-friendly styles of rosé with its cuvée ‘Aurélia’ 2015. Launched this year, winemaker Julian Faulkner’s Aurélia cuvée is a Côtes de Provence rosé designed to offer drinkers a fuller-bodied take on the region’s classically light rosé. “I want to push the boundaries of what one can expect from a rosé and from Provence, so that we may consider certain rosés fine wines,” Faulkner said.

Predominantly made from Mourvèdre, with small amounts of Grenache and Syrah, Aurélia is a full-bodied rosé with a “creaminess” and “acidic tension” that set it apart from the traditional, lighter styles of rosé, Le Grand Cros said, adding that the wine had good ageing potential.
