Villa Vallombrosa 2016

€340 Bottle of 10cl

Summer has arrived at 10-Vins with this pale pink, delicately perfumed Côtes de Provence Rosé. Its delicate nose reveals a combination of fruity aromas, like grapefruit, raspberry and strawberry, and floral notes of elderflower and honeysuckle. There are subtle fruit flavors on the palate too, and a great vivacity that gives freshness and length to this enticing wine. Ready with that barbecue?

Winemaker

Patrice Barré

Welcome to Villa Vallombrosa, a 2,000-year-old winegrowing estate in the South of France. This vineyard has succeeded in preserving its full authentic character and the specificity of its terroir through the ages. Vines have been planted here since Roman times, digging deep into the strata of Trias-age limestone and red Permian-era earth for what they need. The association of these two soil types results in a wine of great quality—the Permian stratum gives richness and body whilst schist from the Massif des Maures mountains provides a pleasantly refreshing and elegant touch of minerality.
