Heart of Provence – handly-picked
Le Paradou, Côtes de Provence
We are delighted to be able to introduce you to a new project from our friends at Château Pesquié. Best known for their work in the Ventoux appellation, they have recently ventured fractionally further south and have bottled their first Côtes de Provence AOC rosé.
Formed using a classic blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Vermentino, the grapes are picked from a vineyard located in the heart of Provence, in the shadow of Sainte-Victoire Mountain, the picturesque peak immortalized by Paul Cézanne in more than 70 paintings. At harvest the grapes are picked by hand in the early morning, cooled at the cellar and pressed whole-cluster to extract the lightest color possible. The wine is then fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks before bottling. The Cinsault provides this wine’s delicate fruit flavors reminiscent of raspberries and strawberries, the Grenache its colour and spice, and the Vermentino its freshness and acidity.
