Winemaker Notes

A bright and shiny pink rose with hints of rose gold in the glass. Fresh and youthful aromas of wild strawberry, white blossoms and raspberry with hints of white pepper from the Syrah grape. Juicy and well-structured on the palate, this dry rose offers tart cherry and floral notes with minerality and some spice on the finish.

The Ultimate Provence vineyard spans 100 acres around the town of La Garde Freinet, at the northern foot of Notre Dame des Anges chapel. Set in wild countryside and bordered by a vast evergreen oak forest, the vineyard is characterised by shallow soil, laid on a waterproof subsoil sandstone slab. This excellent terroir is nourished with a natural compost of oak leaves and vine stalks. The plots are marked out with grassy areas.

Blend: 45% Grenache Noir, 35% Cinsault, 15% Syrah, 5% Rolle

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 90
Vinous

Extremely pale, vivid pink. Bright, racy and focused on the nose, displaying fresh red berry and orange zest scents and a suave floral overtone. Dry and light on its feet, offering tangy redcurrant and strawberry flavors and a tangerine quality that builds as the wine opens up. Shows strong, minerally cut on the finish, which lingers with strong, floral-driven tenacity.

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.
