The vineyards around the village of Pourcieux enjoy their own special microclimate in the foothills between Mont Aurelien and Mont Saint-Victoire (made famous in paintings by Cézanne and Picasso). Mostly Grenache with Syrah and Cinsault and made by the ‘vin de pressurage’ method, the red grapes are gently pressed so that just enough colour and flavour is extracted before the juice is separated from the skins for fermentation. Rose-pink with wild strawberry, raspberry and redcurrant aromas, the palate offers a combination of ripe red fruits and zesty apple, with a decent amount of acidity which adds grip and texture.
Wine of France. Fragrant, crisp and lipsmackingly refreshing, this gastronomic dry rosé from sunny Provence is bursting with fresh summer berries. It works beautifully as an aperitif, yet is versatile enough to go with a wide variety of cuisines.
