2015 Château Revelette Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rosé

SKU #1249298

With clean citrus and light strawberry notes, this is a subtle yet serious expression of Provence rosé for people who prefer a mineral-driven style. Château Revelette is an organically-certified, 30 hectare estate run by German transplant Peter Fisher in the Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence AOC. Grapes are hand-harvested and vinified in their traditional but modernly equipped cellar. Grape varieties in this rosé include 70% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 10% Syrah, and 5% Carignan. From the winery: "Vinified with ripe grapes, this traditional rosé, sporting a pale robe with 'rose pink' hue, is delightful, beautifully fresh, complemented by lovely aromas of peach, apricot, and good density in the mouth. An excellent pairing with grilled meat, refreshing summer fare, fish tartar, petits rougets (small red fish) marinated in olive oil."

The Revelette is a decidedly more mineral-driven style than most rosés you encounter from the appellation of Coteaux d'Aix. Winemaker Peter Fischer keeps to minimalist intervention, even here in his rosé, preserving freshness but letting the terroir speak clearly. The wine has a weighty texture, underlying acidity, notes of strawberry blossoms and wet cobblestones. It is pure and fresh and for well under $20 rivals many of the rosés from Bandol.

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.
