Villa Vallombrosa 2018

Try this delicate rose-pink colored rosé with a slightly coppery shimmer. Behind the intensely aromatic nose of spicy peach is a dry rosé with a lively mouthfeel. Paired with a BBQ, the freshness of this Côtes-de-Provence will be perfect.

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.
