Alain Proux’s “wines have become some of the best in Côtes-de-Provence,” raves France’s Le Figaro. So of course, we had to snag a few cases of his exciting, award-winning pink for all our thirsty rosé fans.
Alain’s estate vineyards are located in Provence’s Var district (named for the nearby Var River), where his vines bask in more than 300 days of sunshine a year. This bit of extra love from Mother Nature gives the grapes serious richness – which translates to more intense flavors. Alain chose a marriage of Grenache and Cinsault, with dashes of Italy’s famed white Vermentino and international Syrah – an intriguing blend that earned a coveted gold medal from Gilbert & Gaillard judges:
“Inviting floral and finely spiced nose with red fruits in the background. The palate combines round, ample, robust weight with effective exuberance and clean, crunchy aromas. Good proportions all round in this lovely rosé for food.”
Perfect summer sipping. But be warned: our rosé sells very quickly this time of year. (You know what to do … )
