Rose - Domaine Pinchinat - Organic - 2020 - Cotes de Provence - France
The 75 acre Domaine Pinchinat is situated just below Mont Sainte Victoire in the Var sub-region of Provence. This beautiful setting captivated Paul Cézanne to such an extent that he painted it over 30 times.
The estate has been in the same family for 200 years and is now run by Alain de Welle who has farmed organically here since 1990. Alain uses a blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Rolle 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Mourvedre which are all planted on a mix of clay ,limestone and gravel at 280m above sea level. No chemicals are used here only only natural treatments such as copper and sulphur.
The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel to keep the attractive red fruits and fresh minerality and acidity. This is Milly's favourite rosé, complex and well balanced and great value - it is totally Provence in a glass so don't miss out!
