Delicate and approachable, Fleur de Mer Rosé captures the serene artistry of the idyllic, sun-washed coastal shores of Provence, the world’s best-known region for Rosé. Vintage 2020 opens with generous aromas of wildflowers, ripe cherry and freshcut citrus. Soft, smooth and beautifully balanced on the palate, fruit-forward notes of white peach, raspberry, strawberry and watermelon blend with refreshing hints of sea spray and herbs. A crisp and delightful showcase of the elegance of Provençal Rosé. The grapes selected for our 2020 Fleur de Mer Rosé were checked each week to ensure fruit is harvested at perfect maturity, ensuring layered flavors and delicate balance.
Grapes were harvested in the very early morning hours to preserve aromas and structure, then direct-pressed to maintain the bright, concentrated fruit characteristics and produce our pleasing coral pink hue. During temperature-controlled cool fermentation of no more than 59°F, juices are tasted one or twice daily. For this vintage, Winemaker Florian Lacroux selected primarily Grenache and Cinsault to form the core of the blend, supported by other extraordinary Provençal red grapes in a beautifully harmonious, layered Rosé wine.
