Rosé has won the hearts of wine lovers the world over ! Instead of offering a basic easy-drinking rosé, we wanted to make a rosé on a par with the other wines of the Château, a high quality rosé with the taste of a true Corbières terroir !
Cuvée Astrosa Rosé AOP Corbières was created in 2015. Produced from grapes grown on pebbled terraces this delightful wine is from a rare AOP Corbières blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache.
« Astrosa » is a word from the local dialect Occitan and is pronounced « Astrouso ». It means « Happy Woman ». And just like today’s modern woman, ASTROSA is beautiful, dynamic, independant and full of dreams !
Through an Art Deco feel we wanted to represent the empowerment of French women which began at the start of the last century, a movement of strength but also elegance. We thank a young, local artist Gaël GAO ( +33 650555507 ou http://www.wew.gaelgaoart.com or firstname.lastname@example.org ) who took inspiration and set to work with his pencil to give a face to our beautiful woman ASTROSA, the unique rosé from Château La Bastide.
Astrosa is a romantic raspberry colour in your glass releasing seductive fruity aromas of raspberry and strawberry along with the heady scents of the local aromatic herbs (rosemary, thyme…) On the palate the wine is refreshing with silky ripe tanins and enveloping length.
Astrosa is best served chilled. The perfect rosé to drink as an aperitif or with salads, white meat, BBQs, mediterranean and exotic cuisine.
