The rosé wines of Provence have the wind in stern, usually light and fruity, they are on all tables as soon as temperatures increase and the beautiful days arrive. Served around 8-12 °C, they are refreshing and do not highlight the heat of alcohol that can sometimes be feared as the summer approaches. It is generally recommended that they be cleared and consumed without delay, at the latest to be enjoyed within two years of bottling. The rosé wine of certain appellations such as Bandol, Bellet or Palette can be expected a few more years in the cellar as they are destined for the guard.
It is often said that Provence is the cradle of rosé wine and rightly so. Indeed, the first vines intended to produce rosé wine were in south-eastern France. The origin of the rosé wine of Provence is very old, the Greeks planted the first vines, they also built the city of Marseille, which became a very important commercial port. As a result, the rosé wine trade grew rapidly. Today, you can find rose de Provence all over the world. The rosé and especially the Côtes de Provence rosé is considered the Provencal emblem par excellence and a luxury product abroad.
There are several methods for making Provence rosé wines, maceration rosé, pressing rosé and bleeding rosé, which is becoming less and less used. It is often wrong to think that in order to make rosé wine, it is necessary to assemble white and red wine. However, it is necessary to assemble several grape varieties (often Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, Tibouren and Mourvèdre whose grapes are red) which are macerated for less time (about 24 to 48 hours) than for red wine. This is how one obtains the light pink colour characteristic of the rosé wines which pleases so much.
There are all kinds of rosé wines, floral and/or fruity, dry or sparkling, in pink AOC Cotes de Provence or PGI... rosé wines for your moments of consumption friendly to the aperitif for example or to accompany your meals with rosé wine of gastronomy.
