the best of the best? Simple – just ask our expert Jean-Marc Sauboua to find it for you.

He reached out to our old friend, Hervé Sabardiel – rumor had it he had been working on a special project pink from the heart of the rugged Côtes de Provence. He had cherry picked the finest Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Vermentino grapes (i.e. all by hand) from ancient vines dotting the highest altitudes in the region. The combination of intense Mediterranean sunshine, poor soils (which forces vines to produce smaller, more concentrated grapes), and cool breezes produced incredible flavors.

Such incredible flavors, in fact, that France’s most prestigious wine guide, Gilbert & Gaillard, gave it a gold medal and raved: “Lovely drive and clarity ... a successful wine.”

Look for subtle berry fruit aromas and flavors, complemented by complex, creamy hints, a note of lavender and wild herbs with a refreshing minerality. Ideal with seafood dishes, cheese platters, grilled pork kebabs, and more.
