2014 Chateau les Valentines "Le Caprice de Clementine" Cotes de Provence Rosé

SKU #1197231

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 made from the traditional grape varieties Cinsault (50%) and Grenache (50%). Its easy approach shows fresh and fruity aromas indicative of the region. It is light and delicate with a pure nose and good acidity to preserve freshness. Serve with traditional mediterranean fare such as a Niçoise salad, grilled fish and vegetables, light cheeses and such. (Certified Organic)

Classic Provencal rose with a 50/50 blend of Cinsault and Grenache. Floral, lifted strawberry and watermelon, and great acid on this bone dry offering. A fantastic summer sipper that will leave you wondering how the bottle emptied so quickly!

Dry, crisp, with strawberry on the nose and hints of watermelon, gorgeous mouthfeel, plus that in-demand light salmon color, this organically-farmed rosé ticks all the boxes for easy-drinking Provençal happiness.

This traditionally produced Rose is a great bargain wine! The fresh fruit flies at your nose...with even more fresh fruit on the palate. This wine boasts 50% Grenache and 50% Cinsault (perfect for using in roses). Great streamlined acidity and balance. Not to mention, the producers are certified organic. What's not to love about this wine for this hot and dry season?

Lovely fruit aromas of pink grapefruit, strawberry blossoms and Red Delicious apples permeate this wine. It has a lovely richer texture for fans who want a little more weight in their rosé, though it is by no means heavy. A nice crisp mineral finish and you have one of our best rosés for the season.

Everything you want from a classic Provencal rosé, full of fresh vibrant acidity, elegant red fruit, and a hint of rose petal come together to create the essence of summertime rosé. The nose elegantly gives notes of fresh raspberry and Queen Anne cherry, giving way to a palate that is clean and precise. Perfect picnic sipper.

One of my favorite Rosés, year in and year out! When people ask me for Provence Rosé, it does not get much better than this. All organic methods of farming are gathered in this beautiful little part of Cotes de Provence. When people ask for that light salmon color, this wine has that. Delicate, with a fresh acidity for a truly magical experience. Got that too. As we used to say back home, this is a true porch sipper!

From the Provence just a few miles away from St. Tropez comes a refreshing, light and elegant rose. Made from 50% Grenache and 50% Cinsault, this rosé fills the glass with the lovely fragrance of strawberries and raspberries, and follows up with a stimulating dose of zesty acidity. This is a quality wine that would fit in nicely with any sunny outdoor gathering. Get a bottle while they last!
