La Promenade is… an invitation to experience a special moment during which life slows down, an instant suspended in time… Whether it be strolling through the heart of Provence, daydreaming on the beach, an escapade at sea… take off on a Promenade!
A true product of Provence, our Côtes de Provence La Promenade rosé is a delicate blend of three varietals: Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah.
The grapes come from various plots located within the communes of Gonfaron, Flassans sur Issole and Pignans, typical Provencal villages at the heart of the Var department in Southern France, and from Puyloubier, a village at the foot of the famed Sainte Victoire mountain.
An ideal place
Ideally located on the hillsides, the vineyards of Gonfarons and Flassans, whose soils are predominantly clay-limestone based, benefit from exceptional climatic conditions with optimal sunshine for the ripening of the grapes along with cool nights that contribute to the vivacity of the wines. An environmentally friendly approach to viticulture is practised in not only our vineyards, but also in those of the surrounding area.
The stony soils of Sainte Victoire lend finesse and vivacity to the wine.
The wines are crafted at a winery that draws on traditional methods as well as modern technology (temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, pneumatic presses, etc.). The grapes are brought to the winery early in the morning. They are pressed immediately in presses kept in the cold before the must is allowed to settle. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and the wine is aged for a short time on fine lees.
Bright and beautiful rose petal colour.
Expressive nose, offering intense aromas of red berries and white blossoms.
A refreshing, elegant and delectable wine with notes of citrus and red berries. The finish is round and flavourful.
Enjoy this Côtes de Provence as an aperitif or with an outdoor meal composed of salads, seafood and grilled meats. Ideal with all Provencal dishes as well as with ethnic foods and sushi.
La Promenade is also available in 1.5-litre (magnum) and 3-litre (jeroboam) bottles to be enjoyed at every occasion.
