Peter Maude Fine Wines

2021, Château Fontainebleau, "Louis Baptiste" Rosé, COTEAUX VAROIS EN PROVENCE


Grenache/Syrah rosé blend. 

Located between Aix-en-Provence and Marseille, the 95 acres of vineyards benefits from a unique terroir and has been farmed organically since 2016. Grown on a type of soil called "pélites rouges". It comes from a rock made of fine sediments. Its ruby colour comes from the oxygenation of iron. The name of the location "Terrubi" also comes from this soil. 

Intense nose of vine peaches, white flowers and litchi. Very balanced palate, round and fresh. (Estate notes)
