Winemaker Notes

This classic blend is made from grapes that are sustainably farmed on rocky limestone and sandy clay soils. At harvest the grapes are picked by hand in the early morning, cooled at the cellar and pressed whole-cluster to extract the lightest color possible. The wine is then fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks before bottling. The Cinsault provides this wine’s delicate fruit flavors reminiscent of raspberries and strawberries, the Grenache its color and spice, and the Vermentino its freshness and acidity.

Jeb Dunnuck
Always a superb rosé, the 2020 Cotes De Provence Rosé offers a light, deliciously quaffable style as well as light strawberry, peach, and cherry-like fruits. Medium-bodied, bright, and juicy, with plenty of texture as well as acidity, it will shine on the dinner table as well as on its own on a hot summer day.

Alexandre & Frédéric Chaudière are from a family that has produced generations of wine-makers at the Chateau Pesquié in the Ventoux, South of the Rhone Valley. In 2005, when they created the Paradou range, they decided to give themselves a new challenge. These two thirty or so year old brothers have always shared a passion for wine. Since he was a mere boy, Alexandre has been certain that he would become a wine-maker and he studied viticulture and oenology at Macon and worked in many of the world’s wine-making regions (Bourgogne, Rheingau, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Australia, Côte-Rôtie, etc.) to build a solid experience as a wine-maker.

After Bachelors’ degrees in Philosophy and in History from the Sorbonne and a Masters’ degree from Sciences Po Paris, Frédéric brings a slightly different outlook to wine-making as well as his marketing competence. The project started in the Luberon, but over time the Chaudière brothers decided to avoid the rigours of the AOP to be completely free to create fresh and sexy wines.

Cotes de Provence Wine

Provence, France

Cotes de Provence is an extensive but valuable appellation that includes vineyards bordering the main Provencal appellations. Its sites vary from subalpine hills, which receive the cooling effects of the mountains to the north, to the coastal St-Tropez, a region mainly influenced by the warm Mediterranean sunshine.

Here the focus is 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 as well. 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. 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 depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
