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 trees for their luxurious
gardens, as a gift for supplying the Royal Court. In 1930, a young Henri Fabre 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 only 18 that
still remain in the designation. The Château has been handed down though the family
and is currently run by Caroline Demey.
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.
Château Aumerade holds the Haute Valeur Environmentale (HVE) certification, which
officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers, including
biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use and water
resource management.
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, fermentation took place at
controlled temperatures of 15 to 18°C, in stainless steel tanks and lasted for 10 days.
Racking and blending took place at the end of the year. The Cuvée Marie-Christine
was named after Henri and Charlotte Fabre's first daughter and the unique bottle
shape was designed by Charlotte Fabre, herself a talented artist. She was inspired by
the work of Émile Gallé, who is considered to be one of the major forces in the Art
Nouveau movement.
Tasting Note
A lovely pale powder pink hue, with a refreshing character of ripe strawberries
combined with stone fruits, classic Provencal rosé.
