If you’re not hungry yet, this L’Opale de la Presqu’ile de St. Tropez Rose is a delicious apéritif all by itself. We love nothing better than to belly up to a beautifully chilled bottle of this Provencal Rosé and enjoy a platter of assorted charcuterie, some French Picholine olives, and crusty bread with a couple of disks of Cabecou de Poitou cheese. Or, to echo the creaminess of the wine, a bowl of fresh fish chowder with roasted corn sprinkled on top. Some days, that is all we need. Venez mes amis! Buvons un peu de Rosé! Winery: “Color: Pale pink color with gray highlights. Nose: A very delicate nose which hints of spring wild flowers. Palate: On the palate, this wine is gives off citrus like aromas reminiscent of freshly picked lemons. Serve at a temperature of 46°F to 50°F. The apellation Côtes de Provence is the most widely known appellation of Provence. Its geographic area comprises 84 towns of the Var, Bouches-du-Rhone and Alpes-Maritimes (1 town) departments. Presenting a certain diversity of terrain, the entire area is subject to the Provencal mediterranean climate. The vineyards, which cover about 18,000 hectares, produce a majority of roses, drawn mainly from Grenache, Cinsaut, Carignan and Syrah. Halfway between the northern area of the appellation, the coolest lands, and the especially warm coastal area, the Maures plain, in the permian depression, the wine benefits from a mixed microclimate entirely conducive to the production of rose wines. Côtes de Provence wines are both smooth and powerful.” Bottle: 750ml, cork Varietal:50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 20% Carignan Alcohol %: 13.0Region:Provence, France
