Côtes de Provence
Ravoire et Fils
CINSAULT, GRENACHE, SYRAH
Limpid, brilliant pink in color. A smooth nose, of white flowers, honeysuckle and stone fruits of apricot and peach, with redcurrant, strawberry and citrus fruits. Fairly fleshy, powerful, tense and mouth-filling palate with a delicate spice accent. Beautiful quality, and consistent. Rich, lively and fresh mouthfeel, offering remarkable flavor persistence. Its silky smooth structure confers a pleasant long lasting finish.
Manon Côtes de Provence Rosé pairs best with simple, tasty, and refined dishes that let the wine’s subtle notes shine. Southern French cuisine like bread with broccoli and olivers, orechiette pasta with broccoli, and zucchini stuffed with parmesan cheese are the best pairings.
Since 1987, here, at the foot of the Luberon Roger Ravoire, heir to a dynasty of winemakers, prepares with great care and patience demanding wines, or fulfilling wines as he like to call them, that reflect the authenticity of the soil and the originality of the vintage. Implanted at the crossroad between the Rhône and Provence regions, the family business has a different approach to the trade, maturing and bottling of local wines. It can also rely on a dynamic and enthusiastic team of professionals. The business was further consolidated with the arrival of Olivier Ravoire, son of the founder. It progressively developed its expertise and established an international standing.
