Les Baux de Provence

€39.50

750ml Bottle

Dominique Hauvette wants little to do with the Provençal rosé craze. Note the color of this rosé—unlike many, hers is not an attempt to simulate water. Next, the aroma: deep and vinous, this bears little resemblance to the grapefruit-and-Febreze-scented wines inoculated with lab-processed “aromatic” yeast strains. What you smell here stems from the grapes (Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah), the stony soil into which the vines dig their roots, and the wild herbs, flowers, and pine forest of the sun-soaked Provençal countryside. Broad and structured, it could replace many a red wine at table should you crave to drink something a bit cooler. Treat Dominique’s rosé as you would any serious wine, and you will be rightly rewarded.
