Chateau de Roquefort Corail Cotes de Provence 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

The parcels for the rosé are always the same, but the combination is always different. 30% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 20% Cinsault. 10% Carignan, 10% Vermentino, 5% Clairette. The wine was produced through direct pressing, partially destemmed. Certain varieties went through a cold maceration for 8 to 24 hours before being pressed. Cold clarification and natural fermentation between 64 and 73F. Gravitational work in the cellar as often as possible. “Corail” is the domaine’s rosé and it has classic Provencal characteristics. Pale coral color with a delicately spicy nose of citrus fruits, lively on the palate with notes of white fruits, citrus and a hint of fennel. Clean and refreshing finish. 138,000 bottles produced.

Perfect summer rose. Neither too crisp nor too sweet. And the quality / price is amazing. Buy it if you are lucky enough to find it, and enjoy a bottle outdoors on a nice afternoon.

intense wine, heavy and "stout" with a long tannic finish some early fruity/berry notes, dry; Goes wonderfully with lamb or other strong tasting meats, or Roquefort. Don't try it with a salad though!

Winemaker Raimond de Villeneuve’s slightly larger than life, jovial and always seems to be laughing; it is this and his passion for his work and wine that is such an inspiration. His vineyard is shaped like an ampitheater, providing it with a unique climate. This is showcased in his wines and this vibrant rose is no exception: bright strawberry and raspberry fruit with a clean finish.

This very rich Provençale red has intriguing flavors of blackberry, black pepper, aromatic herbs and leather. Enjoy with intensely flavored meats, grilled and the like.
