Chateau de l'Aumerade, 'Aumerade Style' Rose, Provence, France
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 1930, a young Henri Fabre 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 remains in the same family today. It is your typical pale salmon in colour, this is the quintessential Provence rosé. A refreshingly fruity bouquet leads to delicate white spice and mineral flavours on the palate and an elegant finish. A blend of Grenache 40%, Cinsault 30%, Syrah 30%.
