Rosé 2015 Tasting from Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence

Contributor blog post by Elizabeth Gabay:

On a cold grey blustery day in early April, I made my way to the Salon du Millesime 2015 Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence held at the Hotel Renaissance in Aix-en-Provence. This is the only one of the repertoire of Provence tastings which takes place in the evening, from 4 to 9pm.

…Continue reading here for the full tasting notes on the 2015 vintage of rosés from this region, a tough year for rosé due to hot temperatures. Liz our Master of Wine also dives into the unique terroir associated with the four sub-regions within Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence. It is fairly common to find wine blends that include SyrahCabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Cinsault, which is not always the case throughout Provence.

I first started coming to Provence regularly in the mid-1980s when, with my family, we invested in a small cottage in the central Var. I started to specialise in the wines of the area, selling them in the UK – way before Provencal rosé became fashionable. A 10 year pause in the 1990s while I worked at the Master of Wine degree, got married and had my two children before we decided to make a move to France full time. Based to the north of the wine region of Bellet and Nice since 2002, I write about the wines of south east France and Liguria (as well as other countries). I particularly enjoy the cultural and historical background to wine and some of the more obscure facts.
