Chateau du Rouet Provence Rosé
Fellow wine lovers, upon the hillsides of the Esterel Mountains in the South of France, Chateau du Rouet grows grapes for an all time classic Provence rosé. Founded in 1888, for six generations Chateau du Rouet has been here, near an ancient roman city at the edges of a red-rocked volcano.
On a beautiful warm day, the rosés of Provence are the perhaps the standard for all sun-chasers and backyard grillers, and Chateau Rouet is a favorite among them. Their rosé is a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 20% Cinsault. It displays a delicate salmon color in the glass, with a nose of cherry blossoms, rose petals, and crunchy rocks. The palate is beautifully crisp, with medium body, and offers notes of lemon zest, strawberries, and raspberries. The Route rosé comes in an elegant hourglass shaped bottle- a signature of the Provence region.
