THIS HAS BEEN A BIG HIT, SO MUCH SO THAT WE’VE HAD TO ORDER MORE, WHICH WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY W/C 24TH JUNE

This fiendishly-moreish rosé comes from various sites in Aix-en-Provence around the villages of Lambesc and Saint-Cannat. The colour is the perfect pale prawn-shell pink, which looks so inviting, especially when there are some beads of condensation running down the side of the glass. It has those quintessential Provençal rosé aromas that make you think of gingham tablecloths and azure skies, rustic bread, oddly-shaped tomatoes, strong cheese, fresh basil, aioli and tapenade. It’s stylish, silky and dry with delicate yet wonderfully thirst-quenching flavours of pink grapefruit, strawberries and rhubarb fool. That’s about all there is to it, but if there were much more to say, it would be “overqualified” and I dare say lose some of its frivolous summertime charm.

It avoids the common pitfalls of cheap and nasty rosés, steering clear of the 'boiled sweet' aromas of a rosé that has been fermented at too low a temperature, it doesn’t have the stalky under-ripe aromas of a rosé that has been left in contact with the skins for too long, it doesn’t have an excess of residual sugar, and it doesn’t have the vinous aromas of rosé that has been blended from red and white wine. It is simply a brilliant summer livener that will inject a bit of the glamorous Côte d’Azur into your homes and gardens at a very friendly price.  It is simply a brilliant summer livener that will inject a bit of the glamorous Côte d’Azur into your homes and gardens at a very friendly price. It’s made from Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, sees no oak and weighs in at a featherweight 12.5% alcohol.
