Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, April 2021

    Gentle pink in colour. Unsurprisingly for a famous perfume house, this is a beautifully scented rosé, with hints of freshly picked raspberries, a touch of freesia and elderflower. On the palate it is gloriously bright and fresh, with a natural weight of fruit. The lively mineral tang refreshes and the finish of soft fresh red fruit lingers beautifully. Quite simply, a rosé to savour – glorious!

Producer

Domaine de l'Ile

Welcome to the new jewel on the Mediterranean Island of Porquerolles: Domaine de L’Ile. Chanel’s latest project is based in Provence’s prestigious and ever-growing rosé wine market, joining their three great Bordeaux estates, Ch Rauzan Segla, Ch Canon and Ch Berliquet. This is something very special. The island is a national park just off the Côte d’Azur, in sight of the Fort de Brégancon, formerly the French Presidents’ summer residence. A mere four miles long and two miles wide, it is car-free bar that of the local policeman responsible for the 200 islanders! The domaine itself is 30 hectares of organic vineyards thriving on dry, stony, granitic and limestone soils, benefitting from the fresh cooling sea winds and wonderful Mediterranean sunshine. What better conditions could there be for the local grape varieties to excel: Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Syrah for the rosé and Rolle for the white?

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.
