Food Pairings for Xavier Flouret Rosé Blend Côtes de Provence Nationale 7
Rating: 90 by Wine & Spirits Mag 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. 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.
Eye: Light and shiny salmon color. Nose: Mineral and floral, peach and strawberry aromas. Palate: Fresh minerality and red berries, good acidity.
13000 cases produced.
Notes: AGEING Wines age in stainless steel tanks.
