Domaine Tour Campanets Coteaux D'Aix En Provence
Wonderful smooth, juicy fruit flavours.
- Provence, France
Domaine Tour Campanets is a delightful property situated in the hills half an hour's drive North of Aix-En-Provence.
The charming Emmanuelle Baude was a lawyer, who decided to go into winemaking. What an excellent career move, and her organic rosé - a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan from her 28 hectares of vines, is really rather wonderful. Three hours skin contact gives a lovely pale rose colour, on the palate it is dry (with less than 2 grammes of residual sugar) and it has wonderful smooth, juicy fruit flavours.
It did very well with our Premier Crew panel tasters the other evening, whose comments read "very nice", "smooth and lovely", and "refreshing taste". Have it on its own as an aperitif, or generally where you are comfortably relaxing, soaking up the sun - but it will also be delicious together with grilled meats, mediterranean cooking, sweet and salty courses, cheese and pudding.
The domaine has had a certificate in organic farming with ECOCERT since 2012.
