    Ch. Montaud 2018, Côtes de Provence Rosé, F. Ravel, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    RS11

    Owned by François Ravel, this 400 hectare estate near Pierrefeu is based on schistous terraces in the Massif de Maures.

     

    A blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre & Carignan, with 10% of Tibouren, a Provençal variety that does particulary well on schist soils and that adds aroma and complexity to the blend.

     

    After a short maceration period, to extract the lovely salmon pink colour and the flavour, the grapes are gently crushed in a low pressure pneumatic press. The juice is then fermented and aged in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.

     

    Dry, fresh and very elegant the wine exhibits fruity and floral notes and a lovely structure in the mouth. The finish is long with excellent balancing acidity.

    “Le Paradou” Rosé 2017, Famille Chaudière, Côtes de Provence, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    RS04

    Le Paradou” Côtes de Provence Rosé is a joint project between Alex and Fred Chaudière of Château Pesquié in Ventoux and US wine shipper Eric Solomon.

     

    A blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Rolle (Vermentino) from 20-30 year old vines from a vineyard at 250 m altidude in the shadow of Montagne Sainte-Victoire in the heart of Provence.

     

    The fruit is hand picked in the cool of early morning and transferred to the winery where it is cooled before a short, gentle maceration to extract the lightest possible colour. Fermentation and ageing is in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats to maximize freshness.

     

    Very pale in colour the nose is fresh and clean with notes of red berries – raspberries and strawberries – with a touch of spice. The palate is dry and refreshing with soft fruit and a lovely supporting acidity that leads to a long, lingering finish.
