A source of delicious rosés, the Coteaux de Varois en Provence is distinguished by calcareous soil and mountainous isolation. Raised on a plateau inland from the Mediterranean, the region’s maritime climate and clay/limestone soil impart a brisk acidity to its wines.
Red varieties here (for rosés and reds) include Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Tibouren (a heritage variety) and Cabernet Sauvignon. Soft and delicate, with rose, cherry, and strawberry, the rosés boast a clarifying minerality while retaining the charming Provencal food-friendliness and quaffability. While the region puts 90% of its vinous energy into rosé wine, the remaining ten percent is divided 70/30 between red and white. The robust reds of Coteaux de Varois reds, if given the chance, show improvement with time in the cellar. The charming whites, based in Rolle (Vermentino, Grenache Blanc, Sémillon and Ugni Blanc have an affinity for seafood.
