A blend of Grenache and Cinsault. During the fermentation, the different juices are regularly added into the blend as the different varieties are harvested.
A nice rose petal color with mango shades.
On the nose, dominating notes of raspberry, wild peach, and pink pomelo. On the palate, round and refreshing, a delicious acidulous harmony, with notes of pomelo, and a crispy mix of red fruit and citrus notes.

The grape juice is directly selected after picking thanks to a double bottom inside the bins right after picking and directly poured into vats. The juice is poured into the tanks protected with carbonic gas and stabilised at 8° during 24 hours to get the pulp precipitated and clarified. Racking. Fermentation with addition of especially selected yeasts for their aromatic qualities, during 40 days, in stainless steel vats, at a low temperature.

"The 2018 Domaine de Mus is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Cinsault. Medium light pink in color it offers fresh red berry aromas with hints of herbs. It is fresh and crisp on the palate with good intensity of flavor and has a lovely long dry finish. - Don Winkler"

"This blend of grenache and cinsault is a delicious Provencal rosé, with racy flavors of melon and herbs and a slightly tart finish. The importer has sold out of the bottles, but the wine is still available in three-liter boxes, with more on the way. Consider that a nearly 50 percent discount on four bottles. That’s a steal. Keep the boxes in mind for holiday parties, from Oktoberfest through New Year’s. This is fun, food-friendly, delicious wine. ABV: 12.5 percent."
- Washington Post (October 2018), EXCELLENT "Three wines to stock up on for Thanksgiving, plus 2 more to sip on warm days"
"Blush pink. Red berry and herbal thyme scents. Very clean, fresh and vibrant on the palate. This is one of those pale colored wines from Southern France that surprise with their intensity of flavor. Notes of red raspberry and rose petals run through the wine from the first whiff to the nice long finish."
