Chateau Pradeaux 2021 Côtes de Provence Rosé, Provence, France

The vineyards that comprise this wine were, in fact, classified as Bandol AOC as recently as 2012, and this newly-labelled wine clearly distinguishes itself from among the vast ocean of Côtes de Provence rosé by virtue of its terroir’s unique pedigree

Farming: Organic

Variety: Mourvèdre (75%), Cinsault (15%), Grenache (10%)

Winemaker: Etienne Portalis 

Terroir: 1.5 ha of south-facing sloped vines declassified from AOC Bandol in 2013

Vinification: All grapes are harvested by hand. Spontaneous Fermentation in concrete tanks that lasts approximately two weeks. 

Aging: 6 months in concrete

Tasting Notes: A core of sappy, glycerol red-cherry fruit anchors a firm, punchy minerality in Pradeaux's Côtes de Provence rosé, and the finish is remarkably persistent. 

The Château Pradeaux is situated on the outskirts of the town of Saint Cyr-sur-Mer that lies directly on the Mediterranean Ocean between Toulon and Marseilles. The estate has been in the hands of the Portalis family since before the French Revolution. The domaine is currently under the direction of Cyrille Portalis, the sole direct descendant of Suzanne and Arlette. He continues to maintain the great traditions of this estate and is assisted by his wife, Magali, and now his two sons, Etienne and Edouard.
