Rolland Naturellement products of the month: Auguste and Augustine French wines
Our home brand Rolland Naturellement was born of a deep desire that had Rolland Tanguay, co-founder and co-owner of Avril, to offer his own range of wines. To achieve this, he attended numerous tasting sessions to select quality wines that reflect the tastes of Avril’s customers. This month, we are presenting to you two French Faugères (AOC) wines: Auguste and Augustine.
Auguste (Marsanne, White Grenache, Roussanne and Vermentino 2017)
This brilliant, golden-coloured white wine is both elegant and complex to the nose, revealing delicate aromatic notes. To the palate, it is round and full-bodied, with a lingering finish of vanilla and spice. Served between 10 and 12 °C, it can be paired with fresh pasta, poultry or grilled white fish.
Augustine (Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Carignan 2016)
This beautiful cherry-red organic red wine with purplish hues is intense to the nose, presenting aromas of very ripe red berries. To the palate it is supported by fine tannins with supple and round notes of red fruits such as cherry, raspberry and ripe plum. Served between 16 and 18 °C, it fits perfectly with mushroom terrine, grilled ras-el-hanout eggplant, charcuteries and soft cheese.
