Tasting Notes "Pale pink with light purple hues. On the nose, delicate with notes of red berries and pomegranate. The palate is refreshing with a lovely density, laden with white peach, rose petals and zest. The finish offers hints of spices and mouthwatering watermelon. Striking a delicate balance between fruit weight, phenolic grip and lip-smacking mineral acidity - this is the Provence we know and love - très beau."

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. It doesn’t really get out of first gear but it is very representative of the place and style. In the zone." (2020 vintage)

The Winemaker "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. 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." (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)

The Winemaker "A delicate coloured rosé showing the traditional pale onion skin tones of rose from the sunny Provence area of Southern France. On the nose, the wine offers a hint of wild strawberries and delicate spicy notes reminiscent of rose petal Turkish delight. On the palate, the wine shows immediate soft berry-fruit flavours that are immediately appealing. Then a hint of white pepper and fennel spice comes through providing a fresh, almost tangy finish which lingers on the palate." (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)

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.
