 Tasted by hr96 on 5/25/2011 & rated 88 points: Top two rose ever?! Beautiful house rose at Casa Aunt Milly and Uncle Rob. Incredibly light and fresh - spritzy even. Colour is pale, pale pink (rose blush). Nose and Palate like a pink lady apple. So beautiful. Not oversweet like most rose I taste, but just like a breath of summer. Lovely! (2060 views)

Vin de Pays d'Oc

There are three tiers of Vin de Pays: regional, departmental and local.

There are six regional Vin de Pays, which cover large areas of France. The most voluminous contributor to this category of wines is Vin de Pays d'Oc, from the Languedoc-Roussillon area in Mediterranean France.

Each regional Vin de Pays is divided into several departmental Vins de Pays, of which there are about 50. The names are derived from the French departments in question and the limits exactly the same than the department's borders. For example, Vin de Pays du Gard is one of the Vins de Pays produced within Vins de Pays d'Oc using grapes from the Gard department .

The local, or zone-defined Vin de pays are numerous, and may take its name from some historical or geographical phenomenon, such as Vin de Pays des Marches de Bretagne or Vin de Pays des Coteaux de l'Ardeche, or even a more locally specific variant.] The boundaries of a zone may reflect a consistent terroir, rather than an administrative convenience, and could potentially in the long run achieve the status of an AOC.
