    Winemaker Notes

    From the heart of Provence on Julian Faulkner's family estate, this rose offers the aromatic quintessence of Cinsault, Grenache and Mourvedre, and a careful balance between character and elegance.

    Very pale salmon pink. The nose is dominated by wild berries with some fresh strawberry, cherry, grapefruit along with some mineral notes. The mouth is both soft and fresh with a nice fruity presence including cherries and red currant.

    Pair with mullet salad, appetizer, Provencal dishes, vegetable stew.

    Blend: 60% Cinsault, 30% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre.

    Domaine du Grand Cros is a 25 hectare estate owned by the Faulkner family since 1989. It has consistently been rated as one of the top producers in Provence. In 2005, Julian Faulkner launched the Jules brand that conveys quality and authenticity but unlike Le Grand Cros, it does not seek to be positioned as a luxury brand. Instead it is known for offering unprecedented value as a path to discover lesser known regions and grape varieties.

    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.
