Domaine Chapelle St. Victor Coteaux d'Aix En Provence Rose 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby color with light garnet hues. Finesse and elegance on the nose, with aromas of small red ripe fruits, exotic spices and violets, with a touch of minerality. The palate is full and round, with a generous finish. Delicate and velvety tannins, with nice acidity and length on the finish. The Volnay appellation is found mid-slope in the Cote de Beaune, with Pommard to the north and Meursault to the south. Always appreciated for their finesse and beautiful bouquet, Volnays are often regarded as being feminine. The vines for this cuvee are on average 45 years old. This square shaped vineyard is located just below the beautiful 16th century chapel of Volnay. Dr. Lavalle listed this vineyard in his 1855 classifications as a "T'éte de Cuv'©eè-, meaning one of the best of the commune. Found in the small band of 1er Crus of Volnay, it benefits from well-drained, limestone-rich soil. Facing southeast allows the vines to benefit from the morning and early afternoon sunlight, and makes this as well an early ripening parcel.

Our best value rose of the season! True Provence rose at this price in this crisp, dry style is tough to come by. This one is like drinking a fresh breeze coming off of a strawberry patch.
