    Château de Roquefort "Corail" Côtes de Provence Rosé '20

    Château de Roquefort "Corail" Côtes de Provence Rosé '20

    It is still rosé o’clock here at Perman Wine Selections! We have been so excited about the 2020 releases and they continue to impress. 

    Chateau de Roquefort has been around since Greek-Celtic times, when it served as an inland fortification for Marseilles and Cassis. Princes, kings, and bishops have traded the property back and forth since, until the Earl of Gardenne purchased it in 1812. His descendants, the de Villeneuve family, own the estate to this day.

    The current winemaker, Raimond de Villeneuve tends the impressively beautiful, biodynamic vineyards that are situated in an amphitheater, creating a very special microclimate. The vineyards range in age from 15 to 40 years. They’re a mix of stony clay and chalk and lie 350-400 meters above sea level. The property is close enough to the Mediterranean that its cooling influence protects from extreme heat and weather patterns. The grapes are hand harvested in late September. This is classic provençal rosé; pure and simple but not overly so.

    The parcels for the rose are always the same: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Vermentino, Clairette. All the provençal characteristics are present here- pale coral color with a delicately spicy nose of citrus fruits, lively on the palate with notes of white fruits, and more soft citrus with a note of fennel. This is a happy, smiley wine that will continue to delight. Grab a case so you bring over a bottle to each backyard hang in your future.

    Would be a great bottle to pair with a corn and arugula salad topped with fresh goat cheese, Royal Red shrimp pasta with lots of summer herbs, and lots of laughter. As we drink the 2020 rosé releases this year, let us celebrate and look forward to brighter happier times ahead!
