About wine: A wine of gentle red colour. The nose is rich, reminiscent of forest fruits, especially
strawberries and blackberries. On the palate it is elegant, harmonious, of mild tannins, but still
distinctly fruity. The “crescendo” of red fruits (cranberries, raspberries, blueberries, currant, red
oranges, melons, red grapefruits) comes to an end in a long aftertaste with gentler notes, reminiscent
of a rhubarb compote with cinnamon, cloves, and lemon zest.

Pairing suggestions: Ladies’ Rosé is the perfect companion for carefree summer days. It is
recommended to be served with dishes which creatively merge flavours of the sea with those of the
forest, such as noodles with shrimps, mussels and mushrooms, omelettes with vegetable fillings and
other egg dishes, fish soups, salmon or trout, tuna steak tartar, or it can be simply served next to a
plate of olives. Depending on the type of food, the ideal serving temperature is between 7 and 13 °C.
