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
