|Olivier Sumeire Le Rose de S.
An excellent value. Light salmon-pink color with fresh citrus and stone fruit on the palate. Grenache and Cinsault.
|Chateau Coussin La Croix du Prieur Rose, Cotes de Provence
The Château Coussin La Croix du Prieur is the estate’s second wine, made from a plot that belonged to the monks of the Abbey of Saint Victoir in Marseille in the Middle Ages. Here the vines average 30 years in age and are planted to soils of alluvial limestone. A blend of 55% Grenache, 40% Cinsault and 5% Syrah, the wine sees a 15-day fermentation followed by 2.5 months in the tank before bottling.
|Chateau Coussin Saint Victoire Rose, Cotes de Provence
Vinified from vines that average 30 years in age, the Château Coussin Sainte Victoire is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Cinsault and 10% Syrah that are planted to soils of clay-limestone that are “made up of ancient gravelly alluvial deposits, vestiges of a huge alluvial cone from the streams descending Mont Ste. Victoire and bordered to the south by Mont Olympe and Monte Aurélien.” De-stemmed, the free-run juice is then separated from the pressed juice, which are both fermented separately before spending four months in tank.
