"This beauty is a quintessential rose and offers ripe yet vivid notes of honeydew melon, crisp white peach, limestone like minerality , and subtle salty, sea breeze-like aromas and flavors. It's beautifully balanced, has terrific purity, high yet integrated acidity, and dry finish. It's a no brainer and a beautiful dry Provencal rose."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Le Paradou Côtes de Provence Rosé, is a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Vermentino from a vineyard located in the heart of Provence, in the shadow of Sainte-Victoire, the picturesque peak immortalized by Paul Cézanne in more than 70 paintings. 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.
