Teres Antiques Mediterranee Rosé
This classic Provence Rosé is produced by Château du Rouët. Before the French Revolution, the estate was owned by a Marquis. It used as a hunting grounds, and sent some wines produced to Versailles. The current family ownership purchased the estate in 1840, they’re still getting settled into their new home. The estate operated for many years by selling wood and cork from their vast forest before a forest fire exacerbated by The Mistral prompted the Savatier family to plant vines in greater numbers in the 1920s as a fire break to protect the forest. The current iteration of the estate began sale of bottles after WWII, and the estate was modernized in the 1990s. This is a classic and traditional Provencal rose with great floral and citrus aromas that give way to a dry, refreshing and beautiful rose. The palate is light, ethereal, and elegant; everything a Provencal Rosé ought to be. This is a blend of 60% Cinsault, 30% Grenache, and 10% Tibourenc.
