AIX  Cotes de Provence Rose 2017 French Rose Wine 750 mL
AIX Cotes de Provence Rose 2017 French Rose Wine 750 mL

AIX rosé is the top blend of Maison Saint Aix. The domain was founded in 1880 as a truffle orchard and was converted into a vineyard in the early 1900’s. The domain is one of the largest domains in the AOP Coteaux d’Pix-en-Provence area, located close to Aix-en-Provence. The cellars are renovated with one sole purpose: producing the best rosé in the world. AIX rosé has been awarded many times with a gold medal at the Concours Agricole in Paris and was elected best rosé by the Club of Oenologues of the French senate. AIX has also been applauded in the international media.

Wine Spectator awarded AIX with a score of 89 points in 2011 and 2012. Falstaff, the largest German wine magazine, put AIX rosé in the top-10 Provence rosés. Spiritually, the brand AIX is related to the wonderful character of the mandarin duck, Aix Galericulata in Latin. In traditional Chinese culture, mandarin ducks represent a lifetime couple, unlike many other duck species. For thousands of years they have symbolized happiness in love and suggest romance, devotion, affection, fidelity, togetherness, and enduring love. The spiritual symbol of AIX can be found on the AIX label: a couple of mandarin ducks in a red Chinese pattern of good fortune.

Chateau de Pibarnon Bandol Rose Pink French Bandol Wine 750 mL
Chateau de Pibarnon Bandol Rose Pink French Bandol Wine 750 mL

The restanques, or terraces were carved into the hill to minimize erosion and maximize water absorption, which is of the utmost importance in a hot, dry terroir such as this one. The soil at Château de Pibarnon is unique, differing from that of its neighbors further down the slope. As a result of a geological anomaly purported to have taken place at the end of the Mesozoic Era, Pibarnon's soils contain large quantities of blue marl and limestone, as well as fossil material which is 150 million years older than that found in other parts of the appellation. The dearth of nutrition provided by these stony, fossil-studded soils ensures that the vines achieve maximum vigor through their daily struggle to survive. · 60% Mourvèdre, 40% Cinsault · The terraced vineyard faces the sea on the top of a hill that reaches 300m, forming a great natural south-east-facing bowl. The soil is made of clay, limestone and white chalk. · Cinsault is free run juice - Mourvèdre is "saigné" (hour of skin contact). The blend of both juices is fermented at low temperatures (22 °C) slowly for 20 days.

Chateau Lagrazette "Purple" Cahors Malbec French Red Wine

"In the 16th century, Marguerite de Massaut, a granddaughter of Adhémar, became the first woman owner of the domaine. Her surname « Dame Honneur » is now given to one of the Château's most prestigious wines. The first vines, a malbec varietal, were planted. In 1503, when she married Pierre de Maffre, the first records of the wine harvest appeared.

Alain Dominique Perrin has always had a love for exceptional things, a passion for beauty in any form, and a taste for undertaking projects considered to be difficult, if not impossible. From his early life as an antique dealer he became an entrepreneur, joining in the Cartier adventure and making the brand an essential in the world of luxury. But far from being content with this worldwide success, he became a sponsor of the arts, contemporary art in particular, notably by setting up the Fondation Cartier in Paris in 1984.In 1990 he launched the first school of luxury marketing and became actively involved with fine watchmaking." - The Distributor
