Winemaker Notes

Brilliant pink robe with aromas of white peaches and citrus fruit on the nose, hints of minerals and spice. Attacking freshness with hints of raspberry and red current on the palate.

Wine Enthusiast
From vines growing close to Bandol and the sea, this juicy, red-fruit-flavored wine is full and soft, but with a refreshing character. Acidity and red-currant succulence show strongly at the end.Best Buy

Domaine Sorin, Cotes de Provence, Provence, France
Image of winery
Located in the heart of the climatic basin of Bandol, this 32-acre vineyard is classified as part Bandol and part Cotes de Provence. The vineyard follows organic principles; soils are nourished with organic compost and worked without chemical products, so as to gain the best expression of the terroir.

The vineyard was taken over in 1994 by Luc Sorin, whom Robert Parker called one of the most exciting winegrowers the South of France has to offer. Sorin wines are found on the finest tables in the region, such as Louis XV in Monaco, le Cartlon in Cannes, and Chez Blanc in Vonnas.

Cotes de Provence

View all wine

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.
