    Winemaker Notes

    A very pale peach color. Intense with ripe fruits, apricot, peach and mango. Light hint of exotic fruits with white pepper. The first taste, “the attack”, is very smooth. This wine has nice body that is providing sweetness, but the sandstone is providing a complex minerality that creates a really balanced wine.

    Chateau des Bertrands, France
    Image of winery

    A former hunting lodge owned by Colbert, Chateau des Bertrands is a 494-acre estate planted with 190 acres of vines, located at the heart of the Maures Nature Reserve just 20 miles from Saint-Tropez. The Bertrands terroir has been considered a flagship Côtes de Provence wine growing area with unique crystalline pink stone and sandy soils. Chateau des Bertrands yields rosés with rare aromatic zest and complex minerality. 

    “With respect to the stunning and protected surrounding nature, my goal is to craft delicate Provence Rosés that depict the Bertrands terroir— sand and sandstones. By harvesting at night and using cold fermentation, we can produce the freshest and most elegant Rosés, which, in my opinion, are very alluring and enjoyable.” - Alexis Cornu, Chateau des Bertrands winemaker

    Cotes de Provence

    Cotes de Provence is an extensive but valuable appellation that includes vineyards bordering the main Provence appellations and extending all the way east to the border of Italy. Its sites vary from subalpine hills, which receive the cooling effects of the mountains to the north, to the coastal St-Tropez, a warm Mediterranean wine-producing region.

    Here there is a new focus on quality rosé, as it defines four fifths of the region’s wines. Following in the rosé footsteps, a lot of new effort is going into the region’s red production. A new generation has turned its focus on high quality Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan. Cotes de Provence white wines, which represent a miniscule part of the region as far as volume, are nonetheless worthy of consideration and can include any combination of Clairette, Semillon, Ugni Blanc and Vermentino.

    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.
