This Cotes de Provence Rose nose is composed of citrus aromas such as orange and grapefruit complemented by a full, spicy and fleshy palate with refreshing acidity. Provencal rose at its best!
The Château de l’Aumérade is a 400 year old estate located in in the heart of Provence. Originally belonging to the Aumerat family, the traditional Mas property dates back to the Renaissance period. In 1594, the Duke of Sully, Henry VI’s finance minister, presented the Château with a Mulberry tree and Plane treees for their luxurious gardens, for supplying the Royal Court. In 1930, a young Henri Fabre (senior) and his wife Charlotte, fell in love with the Château de l’Aumérade, with its 300 hectares of estate vineyards and purchased it from the Aumerat family. The Château was designated as a Cru Classé when the Provence appellation was created in 1955, a system classifying the wine estate rather than the vineyard area. It is one of 18 that still remain in the designation. The Château is currently run by Henri Fabre ( junior) and his sister Marie- Christine.
