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.

  • Big Al, that Gassier Buti Nages has great QPR. We enjoyed his rose night before ... Whispering Angel Cotes de Provence rose last night.  Both were very nice but have to give the edge to the Angel for having a bit more flavor and characte Read More

    Fantastic Cotes de Provence rose. Nice strawberry notes with some tart green melon, jolly ranger green apple and nice but not overly assertive acidity. Read More

  • La Gordonne Billette Rose 2013


    Nice but not great Cotes de Provence rose. A bit tart on the entry with some citrus notes along with tart cherry. Fairly acidic but with a bit of a bite on the back end. Read More

  • 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

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


    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...
