by a nice finesse and freshness. Its freshness is appreciated as an
aperitif, with anchovy or eggplant caviar. This wine is the perfect companion for your summer meals: salads, ratatouille, tian, Provencal tomatoes, grilled meat, white meat, but also fish dishes, cooked or raw. Pairs
well with light cheeses such as ricotta.
Light pink with salmon reflections. The nose has a great aromatic intensity with notes of currant, lime, strawberry and passion fruit. The palate is lively, fresh and delicate, with citrus aromas that stimulate the finish.
The vineyards Côtes de Provence rosé Château de la Galinière cover 30
hectares at the foot of the plateau Cengle next to Aix-en-Provence, in
the town of Châteauneuf le-Rouge. The soil is poor and shallow, consisting mainly of clay, limestone and bauxite. It is the latter which gives it
its characteristic red color. The vines are on average 15 years old and are
located 300 meters above sea level. Caring for the vines (trellising, budding, leafing, green harvesting…) ensure high quality grapes. Mechanical
harvesting is carried out at night to harvest the grapes in cooler temperatures. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes macerate for a few hours
before being pressed to amplify the aromatic potential. Fermentation in
stainless steel tanks is carried out at a low temperature (14°C). Yield: 55
hectoliters / hectare.
