Sables d’Azur Rosé 2016

Côtes de Provence AOP

Sables d’Azur blends of the best selection of Rosé wines from interior Valley of Provence and Sainte Victoire Terroir. These Côtes de Provence vineyards benefit fully from the Mediterranean climate: mild winters, early spring and moderate summers, when the sun’s continuous and beneficial rays ensure the vines produce fully mature grapes, oozing ripe juice. A dry fresh and clean rosé wine, with crispy acidity, and a wonderful souvenir of Provence!


Vinification

Grapes are completely de-stemmed before direct pressing and fermentation at low temperature.


Tasting Notes

Eye: Pale rosé peach colored .

Nose: Elegant nose with delicate hints of small red fruits (red currant) and sweet citrus fruits (clementine,sweet grapefruit).

Palate: Crispy and fresh mouth with a good balance between alcohol and acidity. A finish with sweet hints.


Food Pairings

Best served at 8°-10° C as an aperitif, or accompanying grilled “plancha” fish or dishes with provençal vegetables such as “tian de legumes” or Ratatouille. Also a perfect match with Asian and fusion food and Sushi.
