Terrasses de Perret Gris
New Selection! A rosé made from 100% Grenache Gris, a southern French wine grape use mostly for rosés, but not too common. Bright and full of light fruit flavors, something you don't find every day!
Les Vignerons du Pic and Cellier du Pic are cooperative wineries owned by grape growers in and around the villages of Assas, Baillargues, Claret, and Saint-Gély-du Fesc north of Montpellier. The co-ops now produce wine from several Languedoc appellations. These include named appellations such as Pic St Loup (the distinctively-shaped mountain that gives its name to the area), Languedoc Grès de Montpellier (the Château d'Assas reds you'll find on our everyday reds and reds to impress pages), AOC/AOP Languedoc, and also wines classified as Pays d'Oc IGP. Pays d’Oc is another name for the Languedoc region, and also a nod to Occitan, an old language that’s still spoken in those parts.
The co-op’s Pays d'Oc wines are mostly single varietals crafted as everyday wines, and First Vine is the first U.S. importer of them from this producer. Gris is a rosé made from 100% Grenache Gris, or Gray Grenache. It’s not the same as Grenache Noir (red-wine Grenache) or White Grenache – it’s a red grape but has a pinkish-gray look to the skin. It’s made almost exclusively into rosé, and generally just in France and Corsica, and generally as a blend with other grape varietals.
The color of the wine can vary from very pale to robust pink, depending on the color of the skins. Aged in steel, it has a good amount of acidity, but it’s still got softness to it and is and eminently drinkable. Best of all, you can have something many people have never heard of – that doesn’t happen every day!
