About the wine

A classically classy Côtes de Provence rosé. Pretty, pale, bright and dry, with red berry fruit, citrus and herbal tones. Think sunshine and picnics between May and September (OK from the second half of July until the third week in August...). If you like your rosé on the paler side of pink then this is one for you.

Provence, located in the South of France, is known for its sun, sea, and glamour. A popular holiday destination but also notably famous for producing France’s most sought-after style of rosé. Provence Rosé is iconic, adored for its delicacy, freshness, and most of all its distinctive, subtle, pale pink color. Just a few kilometers from St-Tropez is a stunning 19th century estate called Château Saint-Maur. They farm 100 hectares of vineyard land in the southernmost part of the region. The estate is equipped with some of the best vineyards around (they were classified as one of only a handful of Cru Classé estates) and modern winery and a super passionate team..

About the wine

Château Saint-Maur Côtes de Provence Rosé ‘Saint-Maur’ is made from a blend of 55% Grenache, 35% Cinsault and 10% Mourvèdre, all of which are red grape varieties. So how does the wine end up so pale? Once the grapes have been harvested, they go through a cold maceration period, meaning the grapes are pressed and the skins are left in contact with the juice at cold temperatures for a matter of hours, which allows for gentle color and aroma extraction. Once fermentation is complete the wine matures on fine lees for added texture until its ready for bottling and release.

Get out into the garden or head down the park, this is the perfect summertime aperitif for you and your friends to soak up the sun with. This Provence Rosé makes for a delicious accompaniment to antipasti, such as olives, cold meats, grilled vegetables, prawns or light main meals like Sushi or salads. If you are looking for a case of Provence Rosé delivered to your door, then look no further.
