Mas Cal Demoura 'Qu'es Aquo' Cinsault RoséTabula Rasa
In 1970, when there was a great exodus from the Languedoc due to a loss of faith in its vineyards to provide a sufficient living, Jean-Pierre Jullien named his domaine “Cal Demoura”, which in Occitan means “one must remain”. He came from a long line of vignerons and, at that time, he followed most of his colleagues as they closed their caves and attempted to survive by participating in the local cooperative.
In 2004, Jean-Pierre retired, selling the estate to its current owners, Isabelle and Vincent Goumard. Isabelle and Vincent are committed to producing wines that respect the environment from which they come, and express both their terroir, and the personality of the winemaker.
A rich, expressive and aromatic rosé, the Qu’es Aquo is made in the same spirit as the domaine’s red wines, using the same five cépages – Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan – but in a different blend that favors Cinsault and Syrah. The rosé is saignée and vinified like a white wine to emphasize its aromatics. Note, however, that the Qu’es Aquo is a substantial, full-bodied rosé that performs exceedingly well at the table and expresses proudly its roots in this special part of the Languedoc.
