Ch Vignelaure Rose Coteaux d'Aix En Provence 2015 Product #31145 (In Stock)
Ch Vignelaure Rose Coteaux d'Aix En Provence 2015 Ch Vignelaure Rose Coteaux d'Aix En Provence 2015

A blend of 40% Grenache - bled from red wine tanks - plus 30% direct press Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.  The texture is the real story here, round and plush and mouthfilling but still light and fresh.  You'll love it right now as a late-Summer refresher, but hold on to some for end-of-year feasts and even for Summer 2017 - because this will just get better with time!

"Pale orange. Aromas of orange zest, strawberry and white flowers show very good clarity and a subtle mineral element. Juicy and focused, offering ripe strawberry and tangerine flavors that put on weight with aeration. Fleshy, focused and dry on the penetrating finish, which shows good, nervy cut and minerally persistence."  Vinous (Reynolds) 90 points

"Editors Choice! Coming from a remote estate on the edge of the Lubéron mountains in the north of Provence, this wine is impressively rich. It gains great concentration and structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah in the blend. Full of ripe red fruits, it is dense at the end."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

Dom Du Dragon Grande Cuvee Rose Cotes De Provence 2016 Product #31897 (In Stock)
Dom Du Dragon Grande Cuvee Rose Cotes De Provence 2016 Dom Du Dragon Grande Cuvee Rose Cotes De Provence 2016

Since the 2001 vintage first appeared in the store years ago, Dragon Rosé has been a consistent customer and staff favorite year after year.  The Lienard family tends about 50 acres of vines in Provence and makes this from Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache, and a nice dose of Rolle grown just for pink wine.  Grapes are grown specifically for rosé and are harvested at the perfect balance of fresh fruit and juicy acidity.  Once in the winery, they are lightly crushed and allowed to pick up a just right touch of pink color and red berry flavor before pressing and finishing fermentation in cool stainless steel tanks.

In the outstanding (if small) 2016 vintage, Dragon Rosé has a rich texture and just as much complexity and refreshing vibrancy as ever.  Zesty aromas and flavors of tangy fruit – strawberry, redcurrant, and blood orange – take center stage with a nice dose of rose petal and classic Provençal herb for complexity.  A squeeze of citrus and dusting of chalky mineral help chase the pretty flavors across your palate and leave your mouth watering on the crisp, spicy, stony dry finish.  A lovely match for everything from grilled salmon to Salade Niçoise and delightful to sip on its own.

Ch Les Valentines Rose Cotes De Provence 2016 Product #32030 (In Stock)
Ch Les Valentines Rose Cotes De Provence 2016 Ch Les Valentines Rose Cotes De Provence 2016

Simply the best rosé we’ll offer this year, this is the kind of rosé that will delight fans and convert pink wine skeptics – and, in this year, it will show you just why we’re all so excited about France’s magnificent 2016 rose vintage.  Valentine is a blend of Grenache and Cinsault from 30 year-old vines in certified organic vineyards just a few miles inland from Saint Tropez that offers both classic Provençal freshness and enough heft and body for amazing versatility at table. 

The color of this wine is a showstopper – such a delicate, shimmering, pale pink that it’s hard to believe there could be any weight or flavor at all.  Give it a sniff, though, and you’ll start to smile as you enjoy the generous aromas of spring strawberries, cherries, tangerine, spice and Provençal herb.  Take a sip, and your eyes will widen as this pale pink beauty fills your mouth with a rich, creamy, textured explosion of ripe currant, cherry, and lemon/lime fruit with savory accents of white pepper and crushed herb.  And, as the dry, mineral-laced, finish makes your mouth water, you’ll do the only reasonable thing – grab the glass for yet another sip.  Enjoy this all summer, but be sure to get enough to drink with Thanksgiving turkey and enjoy all winter long.

Dom de l'Olivette Bandol Rose 2016 Product #32074 (In Stock)
Dom de l'Olivette Bandol Rose 2016 Dom de l'Olivette Bandol Rose 2016

We love Bandol rosé, but the most famous wines of this sunny region on the Mediterranean Sea are a) hardly ever available; and b) cost $30+.  So tasting real Bandol pink that sells for under $20 ...well, we think you'll agree it's a treat! The aromas and flavors are classic Provence, with tangy strawberry, sweet peach and tart raspberry fruit complicated by notes of orange peel and fruit blossoms. The classic blend of Mourvedre and Grenache gives the wine plenty of mouthfilling heft - making this a great rose for food! - while tangy acids, a handfull of crushed herb and a bone dry finish keep things fresh and all around delicious.

Dom d'Eole Rose Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence 2016 Product #32178 (In Stock)

Organic Grapes!  An old friend returns in new packaging and with new style!  Utterly classic Provencal rose from a blend of Grenache (60%), Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache Blanc, Rolle, and Mourvedre.  You'll find the essence of ripe summer strawberry, juicy watermelon, and tangy tangerine with subtle accents of crushed rose petal and garrigue.  Bright on entry, silky smooth on the mid-palate, and then bracingly fresh and dry and mineral-laced on the long finish where orange pith, fresh berry, herb, and citrus flavors linger.  This stylish, captivating, pink is wonderfully refreshing on its own but has enough structure to delight with salads, chicken, or grilled seafood.

"With vineyards located in the small range of mountains known as the Alpilles (little Alps), this wine comes from a beautiful organic estate. The wine, with its full range of Provence grapes in the blend, is packed with red fruits. It has a tight texture that points up the fruitiness. Drink this finely structured wine now."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Dom d'Eole Cuvee Tradition Blanc 2016 Product #32179 (In Stock)

Organic Grapes!  Provence is more famous for it's red and pink wines, but with great care and skill, it's possible to create compelling whites here, too.  This comes from certified organic vines of snappy fresh Rolle (aka Vermentino in Italy) and rich, luxurious, Roussanne grown in a hidden vineyard shaped like the tongue of a dog.  The sandy soils let both varietals retain their freshness while Provencal warmth, sunshine, and the blustery Mistrial wind ensure plenty of ripeness.

Aromas of crushed yellow peach, tangerine, and crushed stone lead to a creamy, but bone dry, mouthful of peach, peach skin, lime, salty stone and tangy citrus flavors.  Provencal herb notes come up on the back and the stone, citrus, and mineral flavors linger on and on through the long, saline, finish.  A lovely wine for salads and seafood or just to sip.

Ch Peyrassol Commanderie Rose Cotes De Provence 2016 Product #31900 (In Stock)
Ch Peyrassol Commanderie Rose Cotes De Provence 2016 Ch Peyrassol Commanderie Rose Cotes De Provence 2016

A classic Provençal rosé from Neal Rosenthal Imports, the Commanderie de Peyrassol Rosé is a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah, with a touch of Mourvedre.

Grapes have been harvested at this historic estate along the route of the Crusaders since 1256, way before Provençal rosé showed up in anyone’s Instagram feed. This estate’s flagship rosé has the traditional pale watermelon color from using the direct press method, and shows lovely aromas of melon and peach. Don’t let its pale color fool you - this rosé has enough structure and mouthwatering acidity to stand up to burgers and barbecue while still being a perfect standalone sipper.
