    Chateau Gassier, France
    Image of winery

    Château Gassier is situated in the heart of the Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire appellation. It covers 40 hectares of vines cultivated using organic practices. The Gassier family has a long history in Provence, tracing its ancestry to Barcelonnette in the Alpes-de-Hautes-Provence. As early as 1421, the family was recognized as part of the Provençal nobility, and in 1938 the Gassier family was granted the title of Baron. The Gassiers’ winemaking history began at the end of the 19th century when they purchased 1,000 hectares (2,471 acres) in Saint Estève, of which 200 hectares (494 acres) were dedicated to vineyards. In 1982, Anthony Gassier, representing the fourth generation of vine growers in the family, purchased the 40 hectares (98.8 acres) where Château Gassier now stands. The winery had been built in 1973 and was known as Jas du Luc at the time of purchase. Over the years, the family’s passion, hard work and experience have revealed Château Gassier’s potential for excellence. In constant search of the finest expression of their unique terroir, the Château Gassier team concentrates on growing and vinifying rosés from the Côtes de Provence and Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire.

    Cotes de Provence

    View all products

    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.
