It opens with a light woody top note that suggests cedar-grilled apple, clove-spiked orange, tangerine peel and peach pit. The palate is silky and seductive, with an initial weight and lushness that’s balanced by bright orange-flavored acidity and a lovely texture of delicate tannins and citrus pith through the close.
Located at the heart of Languedoc in the south of France, Clos du Temple is created in the historic terroir of Cabrieres, the birthplace of rose wines. The terroir owes its unique nature to its geological origins. Contact between schist, limestone and the hilly terrain have created a complex network of groundwater circulation that enables an exceptional natural water supply for the vineyard, and the development of an extremely pure water source.
