Côtes de Provence Rosé

Variety: Cinsault (50%) Syrah (10%), Grenache (40%)

Ageing potential: drink young – 1 to 3 years

Serving temperature: serve fresh 8 °C

Tasting notes: A pale orange colour, with yellow hints. A fine nose of red fruits, a subtle touch of acidity and pepper. In the mouth the wine is ample, and shows a variety of precise notes, light, tenacious, spicy, with an irreproachable balance. Deserves an elaborate partner.

Pairing: Aperitif, snapper Provencal, grilles fish or meat.

The Côtes de Provence ‘Château des Vingtinières’ from Domaine Patrice Moreux comes from 35 hectares with a single tenant, situated on the Permian plateau of the ‘Valley des Maures’, at the heart of the A.O.C. and is favoured by low yields, and a soil of clay, sand and a rocky sub-soil. The combination of this delicate terroir with the dry and sunny weather gives us wines that are elegant, lively and have a persistent finish.

Variety: Cinsault (50%) Syrah (10%), Grenache (40%)
