The winegrowing estate of Chateau les Valentines is more than a century old. The estate originally brought their grapes to the local cooperative, but when Gilles and Pascale Pons took over in 1997, they decided to make their own wine. They built a modern winery and called the domaine "Les Valentines" after their children, Valentin and Clémentine. Château les Valentines now covers approximately 100 acres. The "Le Caprice de Clémentine" is part of the second range of wines coming from the estate. Moderately priced, it is a high quality Côtes de Provence m... Read More »
Classic pink Provence blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault and 20% Syrah. Notes from the winemaker: "Light pink in color, with violet shades, this wine possesses a memorable and complex aroma. A lively wine that is smooth and possessing a certain sweetness. Very fruity, this rosé is particularly well suited as an aperitif or with salads and vegetable dishes."

Wine Spectator: "Fresh and light, showing a floral edge to the brisk core of peach pit and rose water. Shows lots of zip through the finish, but remains just a touch lean in the end." (6/2015) K&L Notes: Domaine de la Colombe is based in the village of Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume, located at elevations between 900 and 1,300 feet. The terroir includes clay-limestone soils in combination with sandier soils in the valley.
In the picturesque wooded ridges of the Massif de Maures in the village of Les Mayons in Provence, 3rd generation wine growers Isabelle and Jean-Pierre Daziano farm their small family domaine naturally (without the use of pesticides or chemicals) in order to produce fresh, terroir-driven wines that capture the essence of Provence. This crisp, dry rosé is the quintessential Provencal style, made from a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, and Rolle. It offers lovely citrus and strawberry aromas and flavors, with punchy watermelon notes on the palate accent... Read More »
This wine is a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Tibouren and is sourced from vineyards surrounding Clos Cibonne's property. All grapes are grown on clay and schist soils providing expressive floral and mineral notes.

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest rosé yet from this estate (the wine is made by the top notch team at Chateau Beaucastel), the light pink colored 2014 Cotes de Provence Rose sports a fresh and lively bouquet of wild strawberries, raspberries and white flowers to go with a supple, lightly textured, silky and seamless feel on the palate. About as gulp-able and hard to resist as they come, it's a killer rosé to drink over the coming 6-8 months." (6/2015) K&L Notes: A pleasant little Côtes de Provence Rosé from a property that's played host to St. Thomas Aquinas in 1252, was the residence of ... Read More »
If you are a fan of the gorgeous rosés of Pradeaux, you will love this enticing dry rosé from Domaine Dupuy de Lôme. Farmed organically, this is a classic Bandol rosé at Provencal price. Peachy citrus fruits with hints of berry skin and cut flowers, this is fresh, complex, and invigorating all at once. It is perfect grilled fish and seafood dishes, but balanced to take on more complex and spicy dishes too. For a traditional pairing, try it with bouillabaisse, or be more adventurous and pair it with Pad Thai or fish curry.
From a cooperative winery in the ancient Provençal village of Cuers, the Saint Roch les Vignes Côtes de Provence Rosé is a blend of 50% Grenache with 50% Cinsault, in the traditional Provençal bottle.
Antonio Galloni: "Bright orange-pink. Dried red berries and orange pith on the incisive nose and in the mouth. Dry and racy, with a slightly hard edge and a hint of lavender emerging slowly. Finishes firm and dry, with subtle warmth and good cling." (4/2015) K&L Notes: The name of the estate is the first indication of its long, illustrious past. Located in the heart of Provence, near routes traveled by Crusaders in the early Middle Ages, the Commanderie de Peyrassol was founded by the Knights of Templar who were dedicated to protecting the Crusaders en route to, and in, the Holy Land....

An elegant salmon pink, this rosé exudes aromas of summer cherries and raspberries, with a zippy, refreshing finish.
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A smoking rosé that has fabulous flavor intensity and depth, Bastide Blanche's 2014 Bandol Rose (based largely on Mourvedre) sports a medium salmon color to go with mineral-laced notes of orange blossom, melon, cherry pit and spice. Medium+-bodied, rich, full and layered, with integrated acidity, it has terrific depth of fruit and serious length on the finish, all while staying perfectly balanced and easy drinking. This is a serious rosé that will have 2-3 years of prime drinking, and if you're so inclined, an interesting evolution beyond that as well. ( ...Read More »
The 2014 rosé is a blend of 40% Grenache and 60% Cinsault. From the winery: "Powerful nose, white peach with spicy notes, evolving towards candied apricots, guava, exotic fruit. Great fullness in the mouth, a rich wine with great character, excellent aromatic length typical to the unique terroir of Château Saint Pierre. Its innate character is a perfect match for Mediterranean-style cuisine.'
Alicante, Carignan, Grenache, Merlot and Syrah From the winery: "This area has its roots in the foothills of the Laces of Montmirail. Property of the Vulture family, Domaine Carobelle has produced pure and natural wines for generations. Cultivated with passion and rigor in organic farming, the old vines of Grenache and Syrah are now producing balanced wines, rich and complex with intense flavors of red fruits"

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This attractive sunset-pink colored wine has light acidity along with its rich, structured fruit. This is as serious as rosé gets, with red plum and berry fruits supported by a concentrated texture and acidity." (7/2015)
Domaine Dragon is located in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, in southeastern France where its vineyards benefit from the kind of calcareous clay soils that are ideal for producing Rhone varietals with concentration and freshness. It consists of 60 hectares with 24 hectares under vine, planted on hillside terraces to promote perfect ripening. With delicate strawberry and peach aromas and flavors, this is quintessential Provencal rose, a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, and Cinsault that was fermented in stainless steel to preserve freshness of ...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Both of the reds are brilliant and most likely the wines of the vintage, the 2011 Bandol comes from 30-year-old vines and is a blend of 80% Mourvedre, 15% Grenache and 5% Cinsault. Aged 18 months in foudre, it’s a dense, concentrated 2011 that offers notions of black cherry, blackberry, earth and ground herbs on the nose. This flows to a full-bodied, gorgeously put together palate that has considerable structure, superb purity of fruit and a knockout finish. Give it another 2-3 years in the cellar and enjoy it over the following 15 years or more. Created ...Read More »
A pleasant little Côtes de Provence Rosé from a property that's played host to St. Thomas Aquinas in 1252, was the residence of the Prince of Naples in the 1400s, appeared in the Register of Noble Houses. Rock fans may like to know that the recording studio "Studio Miraval" created on the site has reverberated with the music of Sting, Sade and the Cranberries, and that Pink Floyd recorded "The Wall" there in 1979. Miravals' current residents Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt partnered with Château de Beaucastel's Perrin family to produce the 2014 wines. Hey, ... Read More »
From the importer: "In the early ‘70s Michel and Louis Bronzo acquired the property of the Bastide Blanche, with an eye to produce from appellation Bandol wines the equal of more famous appellations like Cha^teauneuf. Their painstaking efforts were rewarded in 1993 when vintage conditions created the benchmark year to put Bandol in general and Bastide-Blanche, in particular, on the map of top producers in France. Common each year to their success are their very low yields, never more than 34 or 35 Hl/Ha, and simply impeccable cellar conditions and attent... Read More »
The "Moulin des Costes" is a force to be reckoned with. Coming in at 14.5% ABV, this Mourvèdre, Grenache and Syrah blend delivers on more than one front. It shines in the glass with a dark blood red hue. Rich cloves and dark fruit characterize the inviting, intriguing and intricate nose. This wine’s ripe and generous fruit are immediate, yet an iron-like chalkiness and hint of dark spices flows through the finish. The tannins are bold, maintaining elegant grip all the way through. This big and delicious wine will age another 10 years with ease. (Dave Gen... Read More »
One of our favorite white wines at K&L Hollywood, thanks to the passionate championing of it by Jacques. It comes from a property in Southern France situated beneath a behemoth limestone outcropping called Cap Canaille, and it is just 200 meters from the Mediterranean. The vineyards are cooled by a trio of winds--the Tramontane, Mistral and Gregal--plus sea breezes, and the wines, both a blanc and rosé, are reflective of all of these factors.A blend of Marsanne, Clairette and Ugni Blanc, this dry, juicy wine tastes like white fruit and ocean spray, and i...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Moving to the classic cuvee and even more impressive (it was one of the top wines I was able to taste for this report), the 2010 Bandol, which is over 90% Mourvedre, sees partial destemming and aging in oak casks, offers both gorgeous aromatic complexity and superb richness and depth on the palate. Giving up notions of pepper, Provencal herbs, underbrush and leather, with a solid core of dark fruit, this medium to full-bodied, pure, layered and beautifully balanced effort needs another 2-3 years of bottle age, and will easily keep for a decade or more pa ...Read More »

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Bandol Longue Garde was rock solid. A blend of 95% Mourvedre and 5% Grenache (completely destemmed) that’s aged 18 months in foudre, it also shows a slight oxidative quality, yet offers massive amounts of fruit, licorice and crushed rock-like aromas and flavors that flow to a full-bodied, deep and structured feel on the palate. Unique, and most likely not for everyone, it has loads of texture and length while staying enjoyable and very drinkable. (JD)" (2/2014)

Château Miraval's Côtes de Provence rouge is composed of syrah and cabernet sauvignon. Intense and displaying a bright rub red color; nuanced flavors of spices and red berried fruits, with hints of wild herbs and earthy undertones. This hearty and rustic red channels the outback of Provence like nothing else. Try it with garlic roasted leg of lamb or beef daube. Produced from organically grown grapes. 13% abv.
