    Winemaker Notes

    This Rose is made from 35% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 25% Cinsault, 10% Carignan, 5% Vermentino and 5% Clairette.

    "Corail" is the domaine's rosé and it has classic Provencal characteristics: bright strawberry/ raspberry fruit with a lively palate and a clean finish. It is an ideal match for a range of Mediterranean dishes, from appetizers with garlic and olive oil in the mix, to seafood and even lamb dishes. It is perfect with wood-grilled meats.

    Domaine du Roquefort, France - Other regions
    Raimond de Villeneuve's impressively beautiful, biodynamic vineyard is literally situated in an amphitheater, thus having a very special microclimate. Chateau de Roquefort is only 50 acres at an altitude of 1000 feet, allowing later harvesting, which results in more freshness and greater phenolic maturity, and therefore more complexity than is usual in Provençal wines. They are located on the edge of the Bandol appellation, just over the ridge so Mourvedre does not ripen here as well as at Bandol (it is a difficult grape to ripen) so it is not the focus. One third of the vines are over 40 years old, with the rest ranging between 15 and 40. de Villeneuve is young, well-educated, well-traveled and with experience in the trade working for Mommessin in Burgundy. This experience shows in the quality of the wines and the refined beauty of the package. He came back to his old family property in 1995 and began making and bottling wines under the Chateau name; previously the wines were sold in bulk. de Villeneuve is a very open-minded winemaker and taster, always striving for quality and willing to honestly assess his wines. As well, he is always experimenting; he has even planted some Cabernet Franc.

    His talent has been recognized by Michel Bettane, calling him one of the finest winemakers in Provence: "incontestably, one of the great hopes of the Cotes de Provence...the wines perfectly combine ample and intense fruit with a rich and silky body. The wines of Roquefort possess a hedonistic character that will make you immediately rejoice."

    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.

    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.
