PRODUCER: Domaine de Rimauresq DIRECTOR: Pierre Duffort HISTORY Founded in 1864 and now 32 hectares, the name of the Domaine comes from the “Real Mauresque” (the river of the Maures) which runs through the vineyard. Rimauresq was one of the few vineyards in the region awarded “Crus Classés” status at the creation of the classification system in 1955. TERROIR The vineyard is located 35 kilometers from the sea at an altitude of between 140 and 190 meters. The terrain is composed of crystalline rock with sand and gravelly soil. Rimauresq, on a North-West orientation, is at the foot of the Maures range of mountains, which provides extra morning shade resulting in a longer ripening period. VITICULTURE & VINIFICATION The vines are on average 40 years old and their density is between 3,600 and 4,500 vines per hectare. Harvested early morning, the grapes are then crushed and de-stemmed and undergo cold maceration on their skins for several hours. They are then pressed, the free run juice is separated and it undergoes a period of cold stabilization prior to fermentation for 2 to 3 weeks (not malolactic). AGEING In stainless steel tanks for 6 months with “bâtonnage” of the lees. No oak ageing. VINTAGE The 2008 vintage is very elegant and well balanced despite a rainy spring and a dry summer. Harvest happened later in 2008 with a higher yield than previous vintages but still within the authorized maximum yield. STYLE Eye: Light and shiny salmon color. Nose: Mineral and floral, peach and strawberry aromas. Palate: Fresh minerality and red berries, good acidity. FOOD PAIRING This rosé will naturally be enjoyed with Provençale cuisine but also stands up to richer dishes such as foie gras or chicken with morels. WHEN TO DRINK Now and up to 3 years, all year long. TECHNICALS Alcohol: 13%, Total acidity: 2.74 g/l, PH: 3.44, Residual sugar: 1.00 g/l
