Prestige Wine & Spirits Group has added Champs de Provence rosé to its portfolio of wines.
This wine is from Côtes de Provence, the world’s top region for rosé.
Champs de Provence will be available nationwide this spring for a SRP of $17.99 – $19.99 per 750-ml. bottle. It is a classic dry rosé with notes of red berries, citrus and orange blossom with a medium-body, hints of raspberry and a zesty mineral finish.
Champs de Provence pairs with imported cheeses, dishes prepared with intense spices, and can be enjoyed on its own.
Under the direction of winemaker Caroline Moro at Maison Denuzière in Condrieu, the final blend is selected from small parcels within the regions of Trets, Peynier and Pourriéres, just south of the Mountain Sainte Victoire. The wine is harvested by hand during the night to maintain freshness, the company says, and is then cold stabilized for 5 to 6 days.
The grape varieties are vinified separately and the fermentation takes place over 15 days at a controlled temperature of 61°F. The wines are aged on fine lees for several weeks before being blended.
Champs de Provence is comprised of 40% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 20% Syrah and 10% Carignan and Mourvedre.
