Côte de Provence Rosé

Dry and fruity, this rosé seduces by its aromatic expression, elegance and freshness. From the heart of Provence on Julian Faulkner’s family estate, this rosé offers the aromatic quintessence of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, and Rolle, and a careful balance between character and elegance.

Climate
The 2020 vintage began with a mild and dry winter leading to an early budding. The beginning of spring was marked by three successive white frosts which affected the future harvest. The vines then took full advantage of the generous rains up until a very hot summer arrived. The drought conditions put a lot of stress on the vines putting further pressure future yields. Fortunately, the rains at the start of the harvest allowed the vines to regain their balance and the grapes to reach their full maturity.

Grape Varieties
Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, Rolle.

Tasting Notes
Peachy colour. The nose is complex and intense with aromas of exotic fruits, strawberry and cherry with a hint of spice. The mouth is full, the fruit persistent and the finish is salivating. Great expression.

Meal Suggestion
Sushi, Ceviche, salads, pasta with clams, crab roll, gazpacho.

Matthew Jukes - Wednesday Wines - Episode 7 - May 2020
OK, the packaging is simple and inoffensive but the flavour is anything but. Melodic, enchanting and timid, but also long and soothing, this is a sotto voce rosé for all palates to relax with and, at a tenner, it is an absolute steal.

The Wine Advocate - Issue 242 - April 2019
A solid value, the 2018 Cotes de Provence Rose is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah, aged in concrete tanks. Citrus and strawberry notes lead the way in this light to medium-bodied wine, which delivers a plump, silky mouthfeel and citrus zest on the finish.
