Domaine de Nizas is located in the village of Caux in the Languedoc area of Southern France.
The winery produces several red wines, one white wine, and one rose wine.
The 2010 Nizas Rose was a blend made up of 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache, and 20% Mourvedre. The wine was aged for 3 months in stainless steel tanks. It carried an ABV of 13.5% and an AOC classification.
In honor of Languedoc Day on the 3rd of May 2012 (expertly pointed out to us by a fellow blogger. Thank you, Ernest!), I set out in search of a wine from that region. This rose was the only wine I could locate nearby.
In general, I am not a very, big fan of rose wines.
That said, this bottle was a pleasant surprise.
