INFO: The Château de l'Aumérade is a 400 year old estate located in in the heart of Provence. Originally belonging to the Aumerat family, the traditional Mas property dates back to the Renaissance period. The Château was designated as a Cru Classé when the Provence appellation was created in 1955, a system classifying the wine estate rather than the vineyard area. It is one of 18 that still remain in the designation. The Cuvée Marie-Christine rosé is made exclusively from an 89 hectare Cru Classé parcel located on the plains of Pierrefeu.
A lovely pale powder pink hue, with refreshing aromas of grapefruit leading to
succulent peach and apricot on the palate. Fruit forward and full, with a hint of
spice, this elegant rosé has a refreshing acidity and a long finish.
