H.B. Languedoc Rose
Les Costieres de Pomerols
France - Languedoc-Roussillon - Côtes de Thau

HB Rosé comes from vineyards planted on clay and limestone hillsides called "costières" bordering the Etang de Thau. This coastal lagoon is situated between the port of Sète and Cap d’Agde.

Limpid and shiny colored wine with a beautiful bright salmon pink hue. Possessing a very expressive, charming and complex bouquet, the wine offers intense notes of ripe citrus and fruit candies. The palate is balanced, delicate, fresh, generous and ample, developing beautiful aromas of small red fruits (strawberry, red currants) and a long lasting mouthfeel balanced between roundness and freshness.
