Mathilde Chapoutier Selection Grand Ferrage Sainte Victoire

Provence

Tasting Notes

The wine is crystalline in color with clear pink highlights. The nose expresses intense, complex aromas nicely accentuated by floral notes. Rich, long and velvety on the palate, combined with a freshness which gives the wine an ethereal touch. Displays very fine character.

Enjoy with king shrimp a la plancha as well as with strawberry tartare with basil and a dash of fresh lime juice.

Short, cold maceration on the skins. Low temperature fermentation. Constant protection against oxygen to preserve aromatic potential.

The parcels are located to the east of Aix-en-Provence, at the foot of Aurélien and Sainte-Victoire mountains. Provence is known for its sunny climate. The rain in autumn and spring is followed by a hot, dry, windswept summer. The soil here is poor and shallow and made up of limestone and clay sandstone.

    "Limpid pink. Intense strawberry, redcurrant and blood orange scents are complemented by dusty minerals, succulent herb and floral accents. Taut and energetic on the palate, offering fresh red berry, citrus pitch and lavender flavors that are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Finishes very long and floral, with resonating mineral and floral notes."

    "Editor's Choice. The wine is young and has an herbal hint. But its rich future is assured. It has intensity, spice and a tight, tangy character. With its richness, this is a complex wine that will be ready in late 2022. "

    "On another level, the 2020 Côtes De Provence Sainte Victoire Grand Ferrage Rosé reveals a more salmon hue as well as a mineral-laced vibe in its orange blossom and tangerine-like fruits. Focused, vibrant, and chiseled on the palate, it’s one heck of a classy rosé. As with the other rosé here, drink up."
