One of the masterpieces among Provence Rosés.
2020 Chateau Vignelaure Rosé -Coteaux d’Aix-en-
Provence.  
Chateau Vignelaure: The estate dates to the 1960’s, when it was purchased by Georges Brunet, who owned the over achieving 3rd growth Château La Lagune in the Haut-Médoc. He packed Cabernet Sauvignon vines in his luggage and planted them in 1966. Vignelaure has a long tradition of producing highly rewarded wines, which are classical, elegant and pure, while at the same time pushing boundaries and concepts of what is possible to achieve. This is the flagship wine produced by the estate and always ranks as one of the regions finest. Vignelaure is a benchmark producer in the region and features regularly in Wine Enthusiast’s Top 10 Rose wines of the year. The Estate Rose is a classical masterpiece, you’ll find it in most of the Michelin starred Restaurant’s in France. Full of flavour & unusual complexity.

“From another successful year at this estate, the pale flamingo 2020 Coteaux d’Aix en Provence Rose is a blend of 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Rolle (Vermentino). The Cabernet lends a leafy presence on the nose and a certain austerity on the finish, while the Grenache and Syrah provide the flesh to the medium-bodied palate and subtle berry and melon flavors. Rather than expressing itself in a single facet, the Rolle entwines the other elements, binding the wine together into a harmonious whole.”
