Featured in August 2020 issue of Decanter Magazine which awarded this wine 95 Points and ‘Outstanding!”
70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. A captivating pale pink colour. Good weight and structure. Quite a serious Rose with fresh red fruits, strawberry, citrus, grapefruit and a hint of cotton candy. Rounded palate with a fresh fruit filled finish. Very dry, with distinctive malic acid, which is a key contributor to freshness in rosé wine. Elegant, delicate, dry, silky, high quality and above all French!
Located only 20 minutes from all the atractions of AIX (home of Cezanne), however the estate’s cutting-edge art, architecture, sculpture park and drinkable vineyards might detain you. Yet whatever the sophisticated charms of Villa La Coste, its specialness lies in its symbiotic relationship with Chateau La Coste. It is a short stroll down to the Chateau’s mirrored lake, complete with a bespoke Louise Bourgeois sculpture of a crouching spider. Provence never looked cooler than on this beguiling art trail, taking in talking points by Tadao Ando, Renzo Piano and Frank Gehry.
Provence is comfortably the largest rosé-producing area in the world and delivering a highly individual style a long way from the sweeter, fruitier rosés of the New World.
Provence rosé tends to command higher prices than other rosés. And in recent years there have been a number of new premium-priced wines, expensively packaged in carefully designed, modish bottles that look great on Instagram. These are not just cheap quaffers, but mostly seriously well made wines.
Very food friendly – think pink again: crustacea, anything involving tomato-based Mediterranean dishes and, of course, the ultimate Provencal fish soup: bouillabaisse.
Adhering to biodynamic principles, Château la Coste strives to preserve the terroir, protecting its fertility, safeguarding the essence of the soil. The alchemy of blending lives on in a state of the art ‘cuverie’ designed by French architect Jean Nouvel and inaugurated with the grape harvest of 2008. This latest technology ensures the natural expression of the wine and brings new life to a long tradition. In 2009 the wines were given the French organic label “AB” in recognition of the respect shown to the land along with the methods used which are in perfect harmony with nature.
