2021 Château Les Mesclances ‘Romane’ Rosé: Provence, France

$23.00

Tasting Notes

With notes of candied fruit and red currant, this cuvée is an ideal aperitif at any time of the year. It totes the perfect balance of tannin, acidity, and intensity of flavor which is owed to the careful cellar practices at this Château. Pairs well with a Provençal Salad, grilled fresh seafood, or grilled beef sliders with Manchego cheese.

Winery Details

Owned by the ancestors of the Villeneuve Bergamon family since the early 16th century, Château Les Mesclances, has seen viticul- tural activity since the Roman Period. Named for a confluence of two streams on the property, the château is surrounded by 110 ha of rolling hills outside the village of La Crau in Provence’s coastal hills. The majority of this imposing demesne has been set aside to preserve Provence’s natural landscape and ecosystem, with only small parcels scattered throughout the property planted to the vine and olive trees.

Arnaud and Elisabeth, who have helmed the domaine since 2009, have brought the estate’s vinicultural output to a new level, achiev- ing organic certification and building a new cellar that allows them to do the majority of their work by gravity. Their hands-off ethos extends to vinification, as wines ferment with indigenous yeasts and are spared the industrial manipulations all too common to Provençal rosé today!
