Provence remains supreme for classy pinks. Not always cheap, but our Buyer Jean Marc knows that Aix offers quality with value. Using Provence’s classic grapes, the cellar there has captured the pretty berry fruit, stony citrus notes and savoury riff.
This deliciously dry and berry-fresh Provence pink truly is 'exquiste' (hence the name). Our Buyer Jean Marc Sauboua discovered it at a small cellar in Aix, just 30 km from the Mediterranean – an appellation where he knows he can get superb quality at a good price. Its vineyards are blessed by the cooling Mistral wind, which slows the ripening and ups the aroma, intensity and freshness (downside being the wind drives you a bit mad!). The wine is a classic (for Provence) blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Vermentino (known here as Rolle), cool fermented and bottled fresh for you to enjoy the charming fruit. Chill down and serve on a sunny terrace as an aperitif, with crab or spring vegetable risotto, char-grilled chicken or creamy choux pastry.
"Absolutely beautiful. Drink on its own to really savour and appreciate"
