Best Spring Rosé From Hampton Water



FROM THE WIRES...


OUR STORY: Jon Bon Jovi and his son Jesse Bongiovi were introduced

to Gérard Bertrand, and the three quickly developed a shared vision;

to create a unique rosé, that elevates the category by

unapologetically challenging premium norms and unites the essence

of the relaxed lifestyles of the Hamptons and the South of France.


OUR WINEMAKER: Gérard Bertrand is a second-generation wine maker

from the Languedoc-Roussillon, which is 100 miles west of Provence.

Gérard owns 17 estates and has 250 independent growers under

contract. With this incredible depth and breadth of sourcing,

Hampton Water will continue to be produced at the highest quality,

vintage after vintage, at quantities that can meet the growing

consumer demand.


THE WINEMAKING: Personally crafted by Gérard Bertrand, grapes are

sourced from the best terroirs in Languedoc-Roussillon. Specifically

choosing from his superior plots, the result is an elegant and unique

expression of southern French rosé.


The blend is 60% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 15% Mourvèdre, and 10%

Syrah. The Mourvèdre is aged in new French oak barrels for 30-60 days.

This short time in barrels removes a portion of the high acidity one

typically finds when drinking a traditional blend of the indigenous

grapes in Roséfrom the south of France.


IN THE GLASS: The wine is fresh and lively, with soft notes of strawberry,

and citrus; a beautiful, long finish is a result of that careful and

meticulous aging in new French Oak barrels.


ACCOLADES: 4 consecutive vintages with 90-Point ratings and a Top

100 from both Wine Enthusiast and Wine Spectator, the first rosé on the

WS list in 25 years. Impact Brand’s Hot Prospect Award.
