Located in the mediterranean fishing village of Cassis in Provence this rosé comes from a handful of parcels that total seven hectares of vineyards planted in clay and limestone soils, on a gentle north-northwest-facing slope. Grenache-dominated, with smaller percentages of Mourvedre and Cinsault. This rosé is fresh, slightly saline and perfect with seafood. The winery makes only a small quantity of this, making this extremely hard to find, but its deliciousness makes it highly sought after.

The Gassier family has a long history in Provence, as early as 1421, the family was recognized as part of the Provencal nobility, and in 1938 the Gassier family was granted the title of baron. In constant search of the finest expression of their unique terroir, the Château Gassier team concentrates on growing and vinifying rosés from the Côtes de Provence and Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire.
"Esprit Gassier” is comprised of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, and Rolle that combine the exceptional terroir of the Sainte-Victoire region with Cotes de Provence to produce a wine that expresses the family passion, expertise and creativity.
Located in the heart of Provence, near routes traveled by Crusaders in the early Middle Ages, the Commanderie de Peyrassol was founded by the Knights of Templar who were dedicated to protecting the Crusaders en route to, and in, the Holy Land. The first recorded harvest took place in 1256 and winemaking has continued uninterrupted throughout the centuries.
This rosé is the classic representation of the pink-tinted wines of this region and is the workhorse wine of the estate. It carries a pale rose color, a lovely fruit blossom nose and finishes crisply dry with a stony touch that gives it class and elegance. The grape blend is usually Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah in varying percentages. The average age of the vines is 25 years or more. The fermentation takes place under controlled temperatures and is exceptionally long, resulting in rosés that are both lively, fresh and full-bodied.
If the quality of the soils, amongst the best in Chinon, contributes to the renown of Couly-Dutheil, their quest for quality in the selection of vintages and love for perfection in maturing adds to their prestige. One of the stalwarts of Loire winemaking, the Chinon firm of Couly-Dutheil was founded in the early 20th Century by Baptiste Dutheil.
Fresh, clean, dry rosé wine from France's Loire Valley with an abundance of bright red fruit flavors and floral aromas. The Cabernet Franc comes through with excellent aromatics and structure. Perfect for pairing with summer foods on the grill.
