Chateau De L'Aumerade (375ml), 2014, Cru Classé, Côtes de Provence Rosé 'Cuvée Marie Christine'

Rosé, Old World, Grenache-based blend from the Provence, France

Past wine - out of stock. For our current Rosé please see here

Highly aromatic with fresh soft red fruit and pomegranate flavors. This fruity and full-bodied Rosé goes wonderfully with Asian and Mediterranean cuisines.

Why we recommend this wine
We are not a fan of rosé because it invariably seems that it is made out of wine that the winemaker has no other use for. So an opportunity to visit Provence where they actually plant and harvest to make rosé was not an opportunity to be missed (see our trip notes here). We found several that we liked; Chateau De L'Aumerade is up there with them.

The wine
A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault that is full bodied and fruity; highly aromatic and a see-through salmon colour. During our visit to Provence we found that we preferred rosés that included some Syrah. The fashion in Provence when we were there was to make the lightest colour rosé possible. We found them to be thin and not much of anything. This rosé has a deeper colour and is good wine. It also has a very pretty bottle.

The wine estate
Chateau De L'Aumerade is one of 18 Chateau in the Côtes de Provence that is allowed to use the Cru Classé classification. The third generation of Fabre are now working the vineyard but apparently wine has been grown here since the first century AD.

Food and wine
Provence rosé makers claim that their wine has been designed for the food of the region, that is, food with some spice and heat. This is not surprising since Grenache is the base and in red or rosé form it is great with Thai cuisine and the peppers of the Mediterranean.

Did you know?
Rosé is made from red grapes; the amount of colour in the wine depends on the amount of time the juice is kept in contact with the skins – the longer the contact the darker the colour.
