2015 Commanderie de la Bargemone Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rosé

SKU #1248171 91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Created by Knights Templar in the 13th century, the estate now consists of 160 acres of vines. This wine has a strong sense of structure, with a zesty tang as well as tannins that enhance the fruitiness of this intense and juicy wine.  (7/2016)

90 points Vinous

 Light, bright orange-pink. Fresh red berries, orange zest and fresh flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy and broad on entry, offering ripe strawberry and tangerine flavors that tighten up and become livelier with air. Rich yet energetic, finishing with strong persistence and lingering honeysuckle and blood orange flourishes. (JR)  (6/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Orange blossom, white peach and a touch of strawberry all emerge from the 2015 Coteaux d'Aix Rose. This medium-bodied, supple, nicely textured beauty continues to be a terrific value that always delivers. (JD)  (5/2016)

Wine Spectator

 This very pale rosé is brisk and slightly lean in style, with watermelon rind and strawberry notes backed by a savory accent on the bony finish. For fans of the style. Drink now. (JM)  (6/2016)

K&L Notes

Sustainably grown, certified Qualisud. Bargemone is among the foremost estates of the Coteaux d’Aix, a small fine-wine district in the larger appellation of Provence. A benchmark producer of the delicious, dry rosé for which Provence is famous, the Commanderie was founded by the Knights Templar in the 13th century, and is home to a proud viticultural tradition with more than 160 acres of sustainably grown vineyards. Offering classic aromas of wild strawberries and red currants, with a light, floral character and a crisp, bone-dry palate, this is a rosé of reference, to be enjoyed year-round on its own or with a wide range of lighter fare and Provence-inspired cuisine. Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault from 25+ year-old vines. Stainless steel vinification. Two days settling at cool temperatures followed by a cool, ten day fermentation. No malolactic fermentation. Termed a "perennial favorite" by several leading critics and wine magazines, the 2014 scored 90-92 in three of them, a sharp showing for a rosé.

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.

- 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.
