Château Gairoird produces organic wines on its 45 hectare domaine just outside the village of Cuers in
the Côtes de Provence AOC. Here Olivier Duffort grows numerous Provence cépages including
Grenache, Cinsault, Rolle, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Tibouren on typical Provence terroir; well draining,
stony limestone-clay soil - gravoches - which is perfect for classic Provence rosé. Harvested by night
to make this rosé de presse, the juice is cool-fermented for 2-3 weeks in stainless steel tanks, then
stays on its fine lees until bottling in January. Côtes de Provence rosé is all about the blend and up to
10 other varieties in tiny proportions go into this wine.
A classic, pale rose-gold rosé. A very pretty herbal, red fruits and white peppery nose followed by a
fresh, moreish acidity on the palate. A well balanced, Provence rosé.
Well-suited to a wide range of dishes, crab fritters, tuna tartare, grilled salmon, linguine with tomato
and olive sauce.
