World Wine "Good depth of flavour. Crunchy, Juicy, delicious. Outstanding Provence Rosé" (2020 vintage)

Mike Bennie, The Wine Front "For cafes by the water in Provence, or something like that. Pale in colour and flavour, strawberries, some light cream, a smudge of gummy tannin lending some shape. It has good and perky freshness to it, dryer fruit characters, a touch of savouriness." (2020 vintage)

Stuart Knox - The Real Review "Palest of salmon-pinks in the glass. Strawberry, lavender and pink grapefruit aromatics. Great fruit intensity and balance between that fruit and acidity. The finish has a moment of phenolic grip kick in which focuses and lengthens the palate. Very much in the modern Provençal style, ticking all the boxes for summer drinking" (2019 vintage)

Ralph Kyte-Powell - The Real Review "The merest blush of pink slightly deepens its glittering appearance, introducing a subtle, savoury style that’s incredibly appetising. There are earthy, stoney aromas, suggestions of wildflowers, and a subtle thread of plummy fruit that translate easily into a smooth, dry mouthful of tangy, ripe flavour. It’s lingering and zesty with just enough phenolic structure to make it very food-friendly. A blend of syrah, grenache and cinsault." (2019 vintage)

Epicure Good Food, Wine Guide, The Age "Outstanding French Rosé...The bouquet is subtle, and more than simple fruit. Good depth of flavour." (2019 vintage)

Terry Georga "Rameau d'Or is the most classic of Provencal rosés; from the pale pink-salmon verging on peach-flesh colour, to the savoury spice and fruit it portrays. A delicate blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Counoise from Cotes du Provence it is a refreshing, versatile wine that suits aperitif drinking and the quintessential summer rosé." (2018 vintage)

Drinkster, Philip White 'Provence Grenache Cinsault rosé stays fresh and pink with screw cap' "This is a bonny dry rosé of the best sort....mild rosepetal/rosebud perfume that wends from the thorns all the way along to Turkish delight is here....insinuations of gingery lime marmalade and leatherwood honey - are all here jumping and dancing so fresh and lovely." (2017 vintage)

Cameron Douglas MW "Attractive fragrances of light red fruits - light red cherry and strawberry with a hint of cranberry; these are repeated on the palate with crisp and refreshing acidity, very light and fine needlepoint tannins showing off a chalky mineral-like moment." (2016 vintage)

Wine of the Week "Fabulous lunchtime wine with attractive bottle presentation and a back label story to the entrance. The most delicate pink hue, subtle aromas of cherry and raspberry and almost bone dry to the taste which is savoury rather than fruity with spice and pepper nuances and a tangy finish."

Huon Hooke "An outstanding southern French rosé. The colour is pale salmon-pink and the bouquet is shy and subtle, savoury and more than simple fruit. Good depth of flavour, richness and the finish has harmony and persistence. Very more-ish. " (2015 vintage)

George Orwell ''All rosés are equal but some rosés are more equal than others.''

The Winemaker "Striking a delicate balance between fruit weight, lip smacking mineral acidity and taut, spicy fine-grained tannin - this is the Provence we know and love - tres elegant and long. Very pale with just a hint of peachy blush. On the nose, intensely floral with spice-tinged berries; on the palate it has a lovely density, laden with white peach, rose petals and grapefruit rind." (2020 vintage)

A blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Counoise

This wine is produced by Debussy which has several estates in the Rhone Valley, Provence and other Mediterranean regions. Debussy estates produce wines that express the characters and typicity of each of the French terroir that the vineyards are located, creating wines reflective of the regions and their popular wine styles. The name Rameau d'Or means 'Golden Bough' and is based on a fantastical tale of enchantments, transformations and love. A magical golden bough from an enchanted garden was given to a prince, by an eagle, to awaken a sleeping princess. A bough is so powerful that a single leaf from it would make one rich, young and beautiful. Unfortunately, this prince was not the most handsome man in his kingdom. Choosing a full led soul over outer beauty, he and his newly awoken princess set about to transform the lives of those around them.

Provence is a wine region in the far southeastern corner of France best known for the quality of its rosé wines and for its warm, mild climate. The vineyards of Provence cover an area of France's south-eastern coastline that measures roughly 200 kilometres from east to west. In this definitively Mediterranean climate – no Provencal vineyard is more than 55km (25 miles) from the Mediterranean – the vines enjoy around 3000 sunshine hours per year.

Rosé derives its name from the French word for pink. In Spain it is rosado and in Italy rosato. Rosé’s flavours and styles are as varied as the food it matches. Rosé predates white and red wine with ancient rosé-style wines dating back 8,000 years. The colour of a rosé can vary dramatically. A deep fuchsia pink rosé may be bone-dry, though it’s likely to be full flavoured given balance by a gentle squeeze of tannin. Tannin primarily comes from the skin of a grape – as does colour. It’s tannin that sets rosé apart from white and red wine. Almost all wine grapes have clear juice; it’s the skins that give the colour. Grenache is the most popular grape used in rosé, with its lifted confectionary aromas, juicy red fruit flavours and mild-mannered tannins creating the textbook triumvirate for rosé. The temperate Provence region of France is home to some of the world’s most accliamed rosé, perhaps naturally, given it’s widely planted with grenache and its Rhône varietals; mourvèdre, cinsault and syrah.

Jean Luc Zuger is the owner of a famuos Chateau in the Bordeaux appellation of Margaux. Ferderic Salin is the owner of a generations-old négociant firm in Bordeaux that has excelled in representing and brokering the best and most famous wines since the end of the eighteenth century.

Both men share a passion for wine and rosé from Provence! This wine pays respect to the steep slopes in Provence on which the Cinsault grapes are grown. These slopes, or ""terrassess"", provide vital exposure to the sunshine, protection from the strong mistral winds and resistance to disease that are key components to retaining the freshness and crisp balance in this wine.

The Guide Hachette des Vins - the bible of the French wine industry - gave Zuger’s 2007 Bordeaux its highest three-star rating, a score reserved for exceptional wines that are a perfect example of their appellation.

Cotes de Provence is the largest appellation of the famous wine region of Provence. It covers roughly 50,000 acres (20,250ha) of vineyards, which produce the vast majority of Provence's Rosé wine.

Although it also covers red and white wine, about 85% of Cotes de Provence's wine is Rosé, made predominantly from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsaut and the quintessentially Provencal grape Tibouren.

Wine Enthusiast - "The style of this estate is for extra crisp, red-currant-flavored wine, and this attractively named bottling matches that profile. The tight acidity, crisp texture and young fruitiness suggest that it will be better in a few months when it has softened. Drink from late 2018. Roger Voss” (2017 Vintage)

Tom Cannavan - "A very attractive bottle for this wine, a lacey rose pattern screen printed in white over the pale pink/peach wines is very attractive.

Valerie Rousselle (winemaker) "This rosé is very typical of Provence. Perfect as an aperitif in summer and with Asian cuisine."

Chateau Roubine is owned by well-known Provencal Vigneron Valerie Rousselle and lies in the heart of the Var, in Cotes de Provence, between Verdon and the Mediterranean, where some of the most famous and highest-rated Rosés are produced. The land that Valerie bought in 1994 now extends to over 200 hectares, with 90 of them planted to thirteen different French varietals on chalky, clay-limestone soil. It is one of only fourteen wineries in the region with the “Cru Classe” designation, bestowed only on those whose wines are recognized at a higher level of quality. Surrounded by pines and oaks, the vineyards benefit greatly from natural drainage (Roubine means “brook” in the French Provencal dialect) and from the winery’s philosophy to forge an optimum association between the most advanced technology and the scrupulous application of the rules of sustainable agriculture.

Côtes de Provence AOC is the largest appellation of the Provence wine region in south-eastern France, receiving recognition in 1953, with the Cru Classe classification. The Côtes de Provence wine region covers roughly 20,000 hectares of vineyards, which produce the vast majority of Provence's rosé wine.

Wine Enthusiast "All about crisp fruits, this wine is light, bright and immediately drinkable. The red fruits have lively freshness."

Wine Enthusiast "This is a smoothly textured, soft and ripe wine. The blend of Cinsault, Carignan and Grenache delivers raspberry flavors laced with juicy acidity and a crisp aftertaste. Drink now." (2019 vintage)

Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast" Carignan makes an appearance in the blend of this wine alongside Cinsault and Grenache. That adds extra spiciness and emphasizes red-berry fruits in a wine that is fresh and ready to drink." (2018 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast" A simple, soft blend from the south of France, this is a perfect apéritif—bright and crisp with acidity. It's fresh, fruity and ready to drink." (2017 vintage)

This popular soft and elegant rosé is made from a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Carignan. A salmon-hued wine, it is lightly aromatic with notes of honeysuckle and candied fruit. Fresh and dry on the palate, with rich notes of white plums, tangerines, apricots and a hint of grapefruit.

Château Sainte Béatrice is owned by renowned Provence winemaker, Valerie Rousselle who owns the largest winery in the Lourdes region of Provence. The type of winemaking adopted at Château Ste Béatrice is said to be "à la Gironde". This very slow process requires great attention and constant monitoring but allows their wine to reach the fullness of its taste and bouquet. Château Sainte Béatrice has some vines which are 60 years old; the average is 30. Located on hillsides in the Argens River, favoured by a southern exposure, these vineyards are able to take full advantage of the Provencal sun and good irrigation to produce fresh and aromatic Rosés that speak to the wineries motto of “quality and tradition".

Valerie Rousselle (winemaker) "The Rosés are made from red grapes: Grenache, Cinsault. They undergo slow fermentation at low temperature which allows the juice to fully impregnate the aromas contained in the grape pulp, without taking on too much color. This is what gives Château Ste Béatrice rosés their inimitable 'fruity' characteristics."

Côtes de Provence AOC is the largest appellation of the Provence wine region in south-eastern France. It covers roughly 20,000 hectares of vineyards, which produce the vast majority of Provence's rosé wine. This appellation includes most of the viticulture in the Var department.

Rare Rose Blend is used to identify rosé wines made from unusual or rarely seen combinations of grape varieties. There is great variation within the world of rosé, from the fresh, strawberry-tinged wines of Provence to the much-maligned category of White Zinfandel. The grape varieties used are most commonly red, and the pale color is achieved by limiting the contact the grape has with its skins. Usually, rosé wines are made from the grape varieties that are common to where they are made – for example, Provence rosé wines are usually made from a combination of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, while rosé wines from New Zealand are commonly made from Pinot Noir.

This popular soft and elegant rosé is made from a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Carignan. A salmon-hued wine, it is lightly aromatic with notes of honeysuckle and candied fruit. Fresh and dry on the palate, with rich notes of white plums, tangerines, apricots and a hint of grapefruit.

Château Sainte Béatrice is owned by renowned Provence winemaker, Valerie Rousselle who owns the largest winery in the Lourdes region of Provence. The type of winemaking adopted at Château Ste Béatrice is said to be "à la Gironde". This very slow process requires great attention and constant monitoring but allows their wine to reach the fullness of its taste and bouquet. Château Sainte Béatrice has some vines which are 60 years old; the average is 30. Located on hillsides in the Argens River, favoured by a southern exposure, these vineyards are able to take full advantage of the Provencal sun and good irrigation to produce fresh and aromatic Rosés that speak to the wineries motto of “quality and tradition".

Valerie Rousselle (winemaker) "The Rosés are made from red grapes: Grenache, Cinsault. They undergo slow fermentation at low temperature which allows the juice to fully impregnate the aromas contained in the grape pulp, without taking on too much color. This is what gives Château Ste Béatrice rosés their inimitable 'fruity' characteristics."

Côtes de Provence AOC is the largest appellation of the Provence wine region in south-eastern France. It covers roughly 20,000 hectares of vineyards, which produce the vast majority of Provence's rosé wine. This appellation includes most of the viticulture in the Var department.

Rare Rose Blend is used to identify rosé wines made from unusual or rarely seen combinations of grape varieties. There is great variation within the world of rosé, from the fresh, strawberry-tinged wines of Provence to the much-maligned category of White Zinfandel. The grape varieties used are most commonly red, and the pale color is achieved by limiting the contact the grape has with its skins. Usually, rosé wines are made from the grape varieties that are common to where they are made – for example, Provence rosé wines are usually made from a combination of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, while rosé wines from New Zealand are commonly made from Pinot Noir.
