Déferlante Dark Rosé 2019
A Wine That
came from a mix of vineyards within the Languedoc. Olivier purchased most of the fruit from his dear friend and fellow winemaker Etienne Fort as well as some Grenache and Syrah from his local friends who were not affected by frost in that year. The wine is a beautiful light Rosé that drinks like a white wine but with the intense flavours of a smooth and velvety red.

Where and How?
The 'Deferlante' collection is a collaboration between Olivier and close winemaker friends who we sources the grapes from. Each year the blend can be different depending on the year.
The Winemaker: Olivier Cohen
Olivier Cohen is a young man on a regenerative agricultural mission. He wasn’t born into wine; there were no family vineyards to inherit here. He grew up in Nice, and his initial plan was to become a lawyer. When attending business school, he started hanging out at the nearby wine shop and bar, La Part Des Anges. He would soon discover that this was a pretty iconic bar for the natural wine scene, and before he knew it, he’d shot down the rabbit hole and was working there, too. Wine - 1, Law - 0. There was no turning back.
It wasn’t enough for Olivier to sell and pour wine; he was itching to get into the cellar. Through meeting winemakers who’d come to the bar, he had the opportunity to do vintages with some of France’s most iconic winemakers. Eventually, it was time to settle and do his own thing; and the Languedoc was calling.
