Summer French south of France rose starts here. A classic Cotes de Provence rose.
This wine is quite historic for us as it was one of the first Provencal roses we started stacking around summer time over 20 years ago, which is pretty damn cool and all but this domaine has a history far richer than that. Founded by The Knights Templar and are on record as making wine since 1256. The first bottled and sold wine for the domaine debuted in 1981. Made from Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah this is not only a classic blend for Cotes De Provence rose, on the nose, on the palate, it is utterly perfect Provencal Rose. Gorgeous structure, stains the palate with vibrant fruit and chalky stones. Grace and depth well beyond its price tag.
Cinsault makes up the bulk of the blend on the delicious rose, with some Syrah, Grenache and even a little Ugni Blanc mixed in. The grapes for this wine are harvested at night to help preserve the freshness and bright acidity. Ripe red fruit and citrus on the nose with just a hint of stone fruit. Lacy and racy in the mouth with gobs of crunchy summer melon and even more citrus on the palate.
