Rosé Côtes
de Provence AOC

Domaine Sainte Béatrice
Provence, France

Located in the heart of the Var, Domaine Sainte Béatrice belongs to Valerie Rousselle, where she works together with her family to create beautiful, local wines that are truly representative of their terroir.

In our Vinum Masters Côtes de Provence, a classic blend of sun-worshipping varieties, the Cinsault and Grenache, combine to create a wine with a classic Provence colour and character.  As soon as the grapes are harvested, the Cinsault and Grenache undergo cold maceration for a few hours to ensure maximum aromatic intensity in the final wine. The grapes are then gently pressed with the best juices being selected. Fermentation is temperature-controlled and the wine will be aged on the fine lees until bottling, to give smoother texture and body.

Some winemakers in the region like to age their wines in oak barrels. Valerie and the family choose to focus on the bright fresh fruit and floral characteristics of the wine, so they use stainless steel for the winemaking process to protect these primary aromas and flavours.

Sommelier Tasting Notes

Pale salmon-pink hue with dried fruits, almonds, raisins and pistachio aromas with a distinct minerality leading to delicate flavours of currants and wild strawberries on the palate.
