Domaine de Valgencelle 2017

The birthplace of rosé has never been a more popular destination for wine fans, thanks to the ever-growing popularity of pink. This stunning find – in its shapely bottle – hails from the limestone slopes of the Coteaux Varois, where warm sunshine, gentle sea breezes, and ideal soils yield grapes with rich, ripe, and intensely fruity flavors.

That’s why Laurent and Christian Nicolau lost no time when the opportunity arose to buy Domaine de Valgencelle back in 2004. They brought on local rosé virtuoso, Elodie Dieudonné to tend to the estate’s ancient Grenache vineyards and bring their dream of world-class rosés to life.

We think she’s succeeded brilliantly here – look for gorgeous floral aromas with hints of melon and apple, followed by intense flavors of raspberry and cherry fruit, balanced by a mouthwatering freshness. With its bright fruit character and savory, herbal edge, this polished pink will be a hit with grilled chicken, salads, pork, seafood and more.
