Turitelles are marine fossils that fill the slopes of the Upper Aude Valley where Altugnac make this beach-ready rosé. We describe this blend of Grenache Syrah and Cinsault as ‘beach ready’ not because it has fallen prey to society’s pressure to slim down for summer but because of that ocean-blue label adorned with a seashell its breezy freshness and its sunny disposition. Tasting a lot like summer holiday we find notes of crunchy pink grapefruit lime redcurrant strawberry raspberry turmeric and gorse blossom plus just the gentlest touch of sweetness on the finish. Pair the vegan-friendly Origines Rosé with paella tagine and couscous pasta all’arrabbiata summer soup with pistou tapas and barbeques preferably at the seaside but anywhere is great.

Childhood friends Jean-Luc Terrier and Christan Collovray have built and impressive reputation with their operation in Burgundy Domaine des Deux Roches in Davayé. But creating some of the finest wines from the terroirs of the Mâconnais was clearly not enough for this dynamic duo because now they’ve expanded into the land of the Cathars. Altugnac is their Languedoc outpost chosen because the Haute Vallée de l’Aude was the region most planted with their favoured Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Although just as serious as their Burgundian wines we love the holiday vibe of the wines they make in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
