#7 - Côtes de Provence
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.
The 2021 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.
Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, Rolle.
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.
Sushi, ceviche, salads, pasta with clams, crab roll, gazpacho.
