“The world loves rosé in summer. And why not? It’s pretty, refreshing and carefree in the best possible way.”
Eric Asimov, The New York Times
We couldn’t agree more. And in the right hands, rosé can also have a bit of a serious side, turning judges’ heads on the international awards circuit with its purity, vivaciousness and class. Enter: Château Terrebonne, an estate that’s won over 60 awards in 11 vintages – including a gold medal from France’s prestigious Gilbert & Gaillard wine guide for its succulent rosé:
“Very pale pink. Appealing nose intermixing red berry fruits and mild spices. Dense, rich, ample palate with clean, precise aromas. Very well-structured, focused and honest. Elegant, refined and very aromatic.”
Château Terrebonne is located in the heart of Provence – the rosé capital of the world – and boasts nearly 350 acres of oak trees, olive groves and (of course) vineyards. The estate’s low-yielding, 40-year-old Grenache and Syrah vines are behind the concentrated flavor intensity you’ll experience in the glass. At harvest time, winemaker Hervé Sabardeil insisted on picking the grapes at night, when cooler temperatures seal in maximum freshness and zing. Judging from the reaction of Gilbert & Gaillard, his quality obsession really paid off.
Now it’s time to taste for yourself. This summer berry-packed pink is not only incredibly food-friendly, but its traditional curvy bottle really makes a statement to guests. Place your order soon before we sell out of our limited cases.
