    Winemaker Notes

    Very charming pale rose color. The wine displays lots of fresh fruit aromas such as strawberry and watermelon. The palate is focused and very well balanced with again some strawberry and ripe red fruit notes. The finish is quite pleasing and long with a little spiciness and freshness to it.

    This is a perfect patio wine to be enjoyed on its own at the aperitif or with lighter dishes, such as salads, roasted vegetables and hamburgers. Delicious if consumed during the first year of its life.

    Image of winery
    Charles Thomas Cotes de Provence is produced at Château La Galiniere, located in the town of Chateauneuf-le-Rouge, just outside Aix-en-Provence. It is the site of a magnificent 18th Century château dominating the plains of Cengle. The property, certified organic in France since the 2014 vintage, is located on bauxite-rich clay and sand red soil. The name of the town and the surrounding area, Chateauneuf-Le-Rouge, refers to the red colored soil . The property grows Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, Cabernet, Rolle and Viognier. Managers Fabrice Arcari and his wife Aurélie are continuing a long and successful quality control, in the vineyards, thank to green harvest and in the cellar, using a sorting table in order to keep only the best grapes for the macerations.

    Typically thought of as a baby Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the term Côtes du Rhone actually doesn’t merely apply to the flatter outskirts of the major southern Rhône appellations, it also includes the fringes of well-respected northern Rhône appellations. White can be produced under the appellation name, but very little is actually made.

    The region offers some of the best values in France and even some first-rate and age-worthy reds. Red varieties include most of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape varieties like Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, and Counoise, as well as Carignan. White grapes grown include Grenache blanc, Roussanne and Viognier, among others.

    Rosé Wine

    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.
