2009 Domaine de la Fouquette "Rosée d'Aurore" Côtes de Provence Rosé

SKU #1055425

No longer inspired in their former vocations, Isabelle and Jean-Pierre Daziano decided to follow their shared passion and agreed to take over the 35-acre vineyard and farm of Isabelle’s family. Nestled into a forested plane amid the Massif des Maures mountains, Domaine de la Fouquette sits in the heart of the Côtes de Provence appellation. Fouquette’s Rosée d'Aurore, named for the Daziano's young daughter, is a cuvée comprised of the classic cépages Grenache and Cinsault, but accented with Rolle (called Vermentino in Italy and other Southern France appellations), which adds citrus aromatics, crisp acidity and a touch of minerality to its red counterparts.

I can't wait to drink a bottle of this rose on the first warm day that breaks us all out of this oddly long winter in California! The Domaine De La Fouquette is delicately pink in color, with an almost grassy, vibrant nose. The flavors are restrained and fine, exactly what I like in a Cotes De Provence Rose and the opposite of the heady style from Tavel. This is a wine to pair with outdoor furniture and grilled fish. Bring on the sun and the corkscrew!

Perhaps my favorite Rosé so far this year. Very aromatic, incredibly crisp and fulfilling. It has an almost "petillant" character that pairs very well with a beautiful summer sunset.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Provence

- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean. The largest appellation in the region is the Cotes de Provence that spans 49,600 acres of land in and around Marseilles. Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre. While much of the production is dry rose, there are many more serious wines being made from the area. Some of the most important smaller appellations within Provence include Bandol, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois.
