Chateau de l'Aumerade Cuvee Marie Christine Rose Cru Classe Cotes de Provence 2017
90pts & Silver Medal - Decanter World Wine Awards
The wines of Château de l'Aumérade come from a 400 year old estate located in the heart of Provence that dates back to the Renaissance period. This Château has held Cru Classé since the original Provence appellation was created in 1955. The Cuvée Marie-Christine rosé is made exclusively from a Cru Classé parcel, located on the plains of Pierrefeu. The mineral rich terroir of red clay and limestone soils in this parcel provide perfect conditions for the vines which are cooled by the salty Mistral winds blowing in from the sea just a few miles away.
This Rosé has 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 beautiful finish - the perfect summer drink.
