Wine Enthusiast
This is a smooth, beautifully ripe wine. It is well balanced, with crisp red and orange fruits adding a refreshing background to the spice and acidity. This finely made wine is ready to drink.

Aix
AIX, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, Provence, France
Image of winery

The 130 years old winery of Maison Saint Aix is situated in the south of France, just an hour north-east of Aix-en-Provence. With 75ha of vineyard, Maison Saint Aix is one of the largest domains in the famous AOP Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence. Situated on a plateau at an altitude of 420m above sea level. At this special place, the makers of AIX Rosé work year after year with passion and dedication to create the wonderful AIX Rosé.

Location is crucial and conditions in Provence are perfect for making beautiful wine. From mineral rich soils to an ideal elevation; from warm days and cool nights to mistral winds that dry vines on dewy mornings, the AOP Coteaux d’Aix en Provence was made for harvesting the indefectible blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault that combine to build the rich, complex, fruity notes of AIX Rosé.

Maintenance of the vineyard and estate are crucial for the quality of the wine. Every year vineyards in need of regeneration are meticulously replanted. The cellar has also been recently renovated to ensure the highest quality of wine is produced from the northern clay and calcareous soil of the AIX estate.  Hard work and significant investments contributed to the creation of AIX, but it was the passion and promise to favour quality above all that has made the dream of this beautiful rosé a reality for wine lovers the world over.

Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence

View all wine

A fantastic source of dry rosés from the usual red Rhône varieties, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence is a coastal, hilly region whose variations in elevations and microclimates make it ideal for viticulture. Red and a small amount of white wine, also made from Rhône grape varieties, is found here as well.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
