Description

Wine that elegantly expresses the terroir of Provence.

A gentle, powder-pink hue delivers a fine, fruity nose and a complex peach and nectarine palate.

Pairs excellently with Mediterranean cuisine, or lightly-spiced Asian dishes.

Marie Christine is crafted at Château de l'Aumérade, a 400 year old estate managed by the Fabre family. 

Vintage

2017 was an extremely challenging vintage in Provence. Frost and hail during the spring damaged the crop and reduced the yields. The summer saw drought conditions which put the vines under stress. The fruit was harvested early in mid August and although the crop was smaller than average, the fruit was immensely concentrated and the resulting wines are of excellent quality.

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 grapes were immediately destemmed and gently pressed to preserve the fresh, fruity aromatics. The juice was cooled to 13°C and settled. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of between 15 to 18°C, retaining the purity of fruit. Racking and blending was followed by a gentle filtration prior to bottling.

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.
