Wine of the Week - Château Revelette Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rosé

This week's featured wine is one that will sweep you to the South of France - at least in your imagination. The Château Revelette Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rosé evokes images of sparkling blue seas, alfresco lunches, and the celebration of all things summer. Classical and elegant, this wine shows notes of strawberry, apricot skin, ginger, and glazed citrus with a backbone of garrigue.

Nestled in the heart of Provence on the northern slope of the Montagne Mont-Victoire (famously painted by Cézanne), lie the unspoiled and wild lands of Chateau Revelette. The estate is run by Peter Fischer, who studied oenology at the famous University of California – Davis, and upon completion of the program and a short stint at Buena Vista winery in Sonoma, he moved to the south of France and began his search for suitable land. Since his ownership, Peter has expanded the land under vine to 24 hectares and has planted nine grape varietals, all while respecting the surrounding nature. Peter has a relaxed and straightforward approach to winemaking and despite his Californian education, his resulting wines exude a classical Old World elegance and refinement.
