Chateau Maupague Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire Rosé 2018
|Region||France, Provence, Côtes de Provence|
Winery Notes :
The Sumeire family added Château Maupague to their collection of properties in 1991, with a goal of creating a classic rosé on par with the finest of the region, light in color, fresh, aromatic and dry. Rosé’s with a majority of Grenache are rare for the region and result in a much more complex wine that transcends the appellation. Both the Cuvée Cabaret from the younger vines on the estate and the Cuvée Sainte Victoire from the older vines offer amazing value and remarkably high quality, while beautifully representing the best of Provence. 70% Grenache, 30% Cinsault.
This full-bodied wine is one of those rosés that needs some aging. It has ripe, structured red fruits as well as acidity and a touch of tannin. The wine is likely to be ready to drink from late 2019.
