FRANCE'S #1 SELING ROSÉ - FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
You don't get to be France's #1 selling Rosé by accident and this remarkable wine is a study in out and out deliciousness. Elegantly framed, it is a Grenache dominant blend with a dry palate that is lifted by juicy red fruit flavours and a crisp citrus led finish. Superb buying and, best of all, equally delicious with or without food.
Listel is above all a strong story told for over 100 years. It was in 1883 that the Salins du Midi, owners of large expanses of sand in the Camargue, decided to plant the first vines on the “Isles de Stel”, a plot that gave its name to the emblematic rosé: Listel.
The Grain de Gris Rosé is a delicate rosé dress that makes you want to breathe it gently, a wine that coaxes the taste buds before stimulating them with a nice freshness on the finish.
