Greg & Juju Pinot Noir Grenache Rosé

Greg & Juju

Who makes it?

Greg and Juju are not really grasshoppers who really like rosé. They are kids though. They are part of the Vic family who have been the custodians of Domain Preignes le Vieux since 1905. It is estimated that wine was originally made here before the 9th century thanks to the discover of pieces of amphora on the estate. This ties in with the Roman heritage of not only this site, but the south of France. The family make a wide range of wines under different labels, and going by this wine, this label is easy going for sure. However, it also reflects the quirky wines that are in the wine bottle the label adorns.

For instance, within the Greg & Juju range there is a white wine made from Languedoc grape Terret Bourret and Sauvignon Blanc. Plus, a red wine from another Languedoc grape Marselan, and Syrah.

What does it taste like?

This rosé is a blend of Pinot Noir and Grenache. Two excellent rosé grapes. Although Pinot Noir is not the first red grape that comes to mind when you hear the words Languedoc-Roussillon and wine. It is a delightful salmon pink colour with lush summer strawberry and raspberry fruit. There is a silkiness to the texture with a touch of firmness shaping the finish. It finishes drier and savoury.

What to drink it with?

To keep it simple, you can always add some crisps and a dish of olives.
