Tasting Notes

This saline-tinged rosé comes from organically-farmed fruit in the heart of La Ciotat, located halfway between Cassis and Bandol. The wine’s blend is similar to that of Clos Ste. Magdeleine’s Cassis rosé, though this cuvée is a bit lighter on its feet. Notes of bright orange, red berries, and fresh cut herbs dominate the wine’s sea-influenced palate.

Pair with salty olives, fresh cheese and baguette, or a variety of French-inspried snacks.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes for this Côtes de Provence rosé are sourced from the commune of La Ciotat, in a vineyard near the coast roughly halfway between Cassis and Bandol. Using a similar blend to the domaine's Cassis rosé, Vigneron Jonathan Sack has crafted what is perhaps the quintessential Provençal refresher—an uplifting nectar of bright citrus, fresh berry fruit, wild herbs, and salty sea air that is a far cry from the countless technological, mass-marketed examples in production throughout the region. This rosé bears a distinct sense of place, and it's someplace we all want to be: under the sun, by the sea, glass in hand, a bowl of briny olives within reach.

The ancient and historically important fishing village of Cassis is still an active port and, according to Kermit Lynch, “an earthly paradise.” The vineyards of Clos Sainte Magdeleine are particularly stunning: they jut out on a private cape to meet majestic limestone bluffs, poised spectacularly above the sparkling, azure waters. Only a dozen vignerons today are fortunate enough to produce AOC Cassis (the appellation covers just 215 hectares), and the small quantities available are largely consumed locally with fresh fish—the best way to enjoy them.

Blend: 35% Grenache, 35% Cinsault, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah
