This sunny weather demands a cold glass of evening rose and we think that the Chemin De Provence offers a perfect balance of acidty, clean fuity flavours and great value.
The sunny region of Provence produces some of the most richly textured yet delightfully fruity rosé wines in all of France. Don’t be fooled by the pale pink appearance; the 2017 Vallée de Pins Coteaux d’Aix en Provence bottling reveals its true nature with an expressive bouquet of ripe melon, pink grapefruit zest, white nectarine, and a lingering finish of sea spray and dried herbes de provence.
This easy-drinking blend is refreshingly bone dry but far from delicate – it will shine alongside Mediterranean cuisine, including roast chicken with garlicky aioli, classic bouillabaisse, or olive tapenade on a crusty baguette. “Coteaux d’Aix en Provence is a pale rose by design. In the nose, red fruits like raspberries and strawberries come out with more exotic fruits like guava in the background. In the mouth the palate is fresh and clean, emphasizing ripe strawberries and perfectly balanced acidity.” ~Vallee des Pins
