Négrette is one o the best South-West grape varieties to produce rosé wines. As this native grape variety is mostly planted to the North of Toulouse, they have given this blend a name that pays tribute/refers to the famous 'Ville Rosé'. Its pale, delicate colour, very fruity & expressive style combined with a characteristically refreshing nature makes this rosé a polyvalent and festive wine.
