Château la Coste Rosé Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence (Magnum)
Château La Coste is a dramatically beautiful estate, situated 16km north of Aix en Provence with fine views of the Luberon mountains and the snow-capped Alps beyond. The property has been organic since 2009 and follows strict biodynamic principles to preserve the terroir and to safeguard the essence of the soil. The state of the art cuverie, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, is hugely impressive and symbolic of the acute attention to detail of everything at Château La Coste.
It is also home to an extraordinary art collection, boutique hotel and highly regarded restaurants. However, it is the vines and the vignerons that take centre stage and are the beating pulse of this special place.
Their flagship Coteaux d’Aix en Provence Rosé (Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault) is a refined and elegant wine, marked by minerality and smooth finesse. On the palate, you can find a dominance of white fruits, vine peaches and pear, with hints of red fruit, leading to a long and fresh finish!
95 points, Decanter:
"Strong pink. Good weight and structure – quite a serious rosé with lots of intense, wild red berry fruit, a few black berries, mineral core and firm phenolic finish. A lovely, serious, gastronomic rosé. Blind Tasted." Elizabeth Gabay MW
"Deep dayglow copper-pink. Peach and pear aromas, quite complex. Fleshy peach and peppery spice on the palate. Full-bodied, powerful, rich and leesy. Complex. Blind Tasted." Joanna Simon
"Mid-pale pink colour. Earthy cranberry and raspberry fruit aromas. Some spice. Fruity and flavoursome, with good depth and spice. Balanced acidity and some creaminess. Blind Tasted." Rod Smith MW
