Grape(s): Cinsaut (30%), Grenache (30%), Syrah (20%), Mourvèdre (20%)
Localization: Provence, France
Tasting Notes: Discrete lovely salmon color. Elegant, fresh and pure nose (hint of cranberries, anise, and fennel). Round, supple, fullbodied, well balanced and aromatic mouth. The finish is voluptuous and slightly spicy after taste. We recommend to drink rosé wines within 2 to 3 years of its production in order to enjoy it as a fresh and outstanding fruity wine. Château Les Valentines rosé wine should not be served too chilled to keep intact all its fullness and aromatic expression: 8/10°C.
Notes: Château Les Valentines elaborates an exclusive rosé crafted for the most discerning drinkers. The blend is mainly made from GRENACHE for its warm and inviting fineness and CINSAULT for its lightness, elegance and fruity aromas. The delicate flavours and pale salmon color are highly sought after in luxury hotels and high end restaurants on the French Riviera and Paris.
Food pairing: Enjoy with oysters, baked sea bass with fennel, egg plant lasagna, Mediterranean buffet, Caesar salad, stuffed vegetables, exotic dishes: Japanese sushi, Thai cuisine, Indian curries. It is also an excellent companion to start a meal, as it awakens the palate.
The Domain: The winegrowing estate of Chateau les Valentines is more than a century old. The estate originally brought their grapes to the local cooperative, but when Gilles and Pascale Pons took over in 1997, they decided to make their own wine. They built a modern winery and called the domaine "Les Valentines" after their children, Valentin and Clémentine. Château les Valentines now covers approximately 100 acres.
