      Tasting Notes
      Situated in the Minervois, a seductive region in the west of France's Languedoc, tucked in between the medieval city of Carcassonne, the Black Mountains and the Canal du Midi, the family-owned Château St Jacques d’Albas benefits from a wealth of natural advantages to produce impressive wines.

      Over 60 hectares of forest and garrigue, teaming with wildlife, and an 11th century chapel, protect the 26 hectares of vines. Our philosophy from the beginning has been to limit yields and take an organic approach to managing the soil and the vines.

      At the winery, a small team, led by owner Graham Nutter, crafts superb reds, whites and rosés, all of which are farmed organically. The "La Chapelle en Rose" is based upon a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre and 10% Roussanne, although this does change depending on what the vintage delivers.

      A special limited edition rose cuvée in honour of our 11th century chapel which presides over the vineyard. As the sun sets, the fine stonework reflects an ethereal shade of soft pink that is echoed in this handcrafted, refreshing Rosé.

      Serve chilled, and ideal as an aperitif or with light meals to bring you a taste of our French summer.

      "Pale salmon pink. Intriguing minty note on the nose. Real grab on the palate. Quite an assertive wine that would stand up to food pretty well but, well chilled, would also make a good aperitif. I may even go and buy some myself this summer.
      16.5/20 points."
      (Jancis Robinson, JR Purple Pages, June 2016 - Commentating on 2015 vintage)
