Provence Wine

Sun-soaked Provence – home of the celebrated destinations of St. Tropez and Cannes, and beloved retreat of Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso, and Van Gogh – is also the birthplace of the world’s finest dry rosé wines. These elegant pinks, made from red grapes, are known for offering the body of a red wine with the crispness of a white. In France today, rosé is so loved that it outsells white wine. And in the U.S., it has been one of the fastest growing categories for six years running. Discover the dry pink!

 

Also worth seeking out are the outstanding reds (and some whites) of the sub-regions of Bandol, Cassis, Bellet and Pallette.

  • This is still drinking well for a 2012.  A bit of spritz upon first sip, ... nose has a slight herbes de provence note, along with underripe watermelon, and a tad note of bacon (not something I note in most roses!!).  Also a note of sea salt air on that nose.  The palate shows minerality, wet stones, herbs, and slight tart citrus. I am really ... Read More

  • Back home once again after the fantastic Provence trip and then a venture out west to visit our son in Portland OR.  Did some time in Willamette, visited multiple wineries with Remy, Eyrie and Kramer standing a bit above the others. Anyway, went to the Eurocave and grabbed this '10 Adelaida Michael's Vineyard zin for dinner.  RBA, I really like ... Read More

  • One more note, this trip was an almost all inclusive "package" - accommodations, most meals, transportation, a detailed itinerary with some on your own time and an American guide who has lived in France for the last 22 years. One really nice thing is that this is tailored to small groups, max 5 couples, so you don't feel like you're being herded... Read More

  • Mas de Gourgonnier les Baux-de-Provence Rose 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Lovely and complex on the nose with all sorts of leafy herb, floral and spice framed astringent red berry fruit. A bit soft on entry, and very easy to drink, this shows a hint of minerality early on the palate, along with creamy red fruits that are very approachable. the acid pops a bit on the backend, along with raspberry fruit, but i think thi...

  • Last day of wine touring.Thursday had us lunching with Vincent Rochette, owner and winemaker for Domaine Roche-Audran. Really nice guy in his early 40's.  After lunch we went to his winery and sampled through some of his offerings. A fantastic white Cotes du Rhone of grenache blanc, clairette and viognier was rich but with nice minerality and ve... Read More

  • JD, the price.  Really, both the coudelet and the Chateau Neuf were extremely similar in taste and structure, I'd have a hard time telling them apart in a blind tasting but then again, that's my unsophisticated palate talking.Here's a bit more cool stuff:Beaucastel galets stones. Can't imagine how you could work the vines having to walk on these... Read More
