Producer Note
The Château de l'Aumérade is a 400 year old estate located in in the heart of Provence. Originally belonging to the Aumerat family, the traditional Mas property dates back to the Renaissance period. In 1594, the Duke of Sully, Henry VI's finance minister, presented the Château with a Mulberry tree and Plane treees for their luxurious gardens, for supplying the Royal Court. In 1930, a young Henri Fabre senior and his wife Charlotte, fell in love with the Château de l'Aumérade, with its 300 hectares of estate vineyards and purchased it from the Aumerat family. The Château was designated as a Cru Classé when the Provence appellation was created in 1955, a system classifying the wine estate rather than the vineyard area. It is one of 18 that still remain in the designation. The Château is currently run by Henri Fabre junior and his sister Marie-Christine. Vineyard
The Cuvée Marie-Christine rosé is made exclusively from an 89 hectare Cru Classé parcel, located on the plains of Pierrefeu. The mineral rich terroir of red clay and limestone soils in this parcel provide good drainage and the vines receive a cooling ventilation from the salty Mistral winds blowing in from the sea just a few miles away. Winemaking
The harvest took place at the beginning of September and the grapes were immediately destemmed. The berries were gently pressed and the juice was carefully selected and cooled to 13°C. Following a static settling, a 10 day alcoholic fermentation took place under temperture controlled conditions of between 15 to 18°C, preserving the integrity of the primary aromas. Racking and blending took place at the end of the year with tartaric stabilisation and filtration. The eponymous Cuvée Marie-Christine was named after Henri and Charlotte Fabre's first daughter. The unique bottle was designed by Charlotte Fabre, herself a talented artist. Inspired by the work of Émile Gallé, who is considered to be one of the major forces in the Art Nouveau movement, this elegant bottle has been developed to mark the 60th anniversary of the Cuvée Marie-Christine. This collector's bottle pays homage to Charlotte Fabre, her taste for elegance and art-de-vivre. Tasting Note
A lovely pale powder pink hue, with refreshing aromas of grapefruit leading to succulent peach and apricot on the palate. Fruit forward and full, with a hint of spice, this elegant rosé has a refreshing acidity and a long finish. Serving Suggestion
Serve chilled as an elegant apéritif or as an ideal accompaniment to Mediterranean or lightly spiced Asian cuisine; sushi, exotic fusion food and grilled fish.
