The Villa Collection by Lionel Osmin
Lionel Osmin’s Villa Collection of varietal wines marries tradition and modernity. Plentiful or shy, these are traditional grape varieties unlike any other. With fruit and personality, these accessible wines are a pleasure to drink throughout the year.
VILLA LA VIE EN ROSE
Négrette is one of the best grape varieties in the southwest for the production of rosé wines. This native variety is mainly planted to the north of Toulouse, and the Cuvée bears a name that pays homage to this famous “Ville Rose“ so beautifully sung by the French blues star Claude Nougaro. Its pale and delicate dress, its very fruity, expressive style and its characteristic freshness make this rosé a versatile and festive wine.
VILLA CHAMBRE D’AMOUR
The golden and sun-drenched clusters of gros Manseng and Sauvignon blanc are picked after the first frosts of the autumn to give this wine mellow, refreshing and sweet notes at the same time. It enchants with its notes of grapefruit, pineapple, pear and bourbon vanilla, as well as its low level of alcohol (10.5%). It bears the evocative name of the famous beach at Anglet in the Basque Country, on the Atlantic coast.
VILLA GRAND CAP
A blend of Colombard and Sauvignon Blanc with a touch of gros Manseng, selected in the heart of the various vineyards of the southwest, gives “Villa Grand Cap”, the profile of an
elegant white wine: fresh and fruity. Its assertive style makes it possible to associate it with many dishes of international gastronomy.
VILLA DE COCAGNE
The Merlot and the Tannat with a hint of Syrah, give this wine with the scents of violet, grey pepper and crisp black cherries wrapped in silky tannins. Its roundness and fruits allow it to be served slightly chilled to accompany any meal.
