Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, July 2020

    This has the signature St Baillon hallmarks of delicate red fruits but with a greater level of complexity. An excellent flagship cuvée that is bright and summery with hints of fresh rose petal on the long finish. Pure, thirst-quenching and vibrant, it’s the perfect accompaniment for a long summer lunch.

Producer

Château St Baillon

Saint-Baillon is a bona fide Goedhuis favourite and never out of stock. This pale Provencal rosé encapsulates the summer breeze, and offers outstanding value for money. Having been founded in 1980 by Hervé Goudard the estate was recently purchased by the Delon family. Marie Delon is running this estate with a light touch and this recent acquisition has marked a decisive increase in quality. 30 hectares of vines benefit from the natural protection of the surrounding hills. These protect the estate from both frost and hail, and draw in a cool and constant breeze, so that the grapes can ripen in the brilliant Mediterranean sun whilst retaining a fresh and vibrant acidity.

Region

Côtes de Provence

France's most extensive appellation, the Côtes de Provence stretches from Toulon in the west to near Cannes in the east. The vineyards run from the sun-baked Mediterranean coast up into the Alpine foothills with their cooling influence. Rose wine accounts for four fifths of Côtes de Provence production. Formerly a drink for holidays only, consumption of rose is on the rise in both France and the UK and and the wines are more and more serious. Typically Cinsaut and Grenache are the most popular grape varieties. There is also a renewed focus on producing higher quality red wine by incorporating Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah into the blends, although combined they can only represent 30% of the blend. Plantings of indigenous white varieties are also increasing especially in the coastal areas.
