High up in the hills just north of Aix-en-Provence, away from the heat of the coast, you’ll find a set of ancient stone gates. Beyond them lies the Maison Saint Aix estate. From a property that converted from a truffle orchard to a vineyard in the early 1900s, the estate is dedicated to capturing the essence of this iconic terroir in a single premium rosé. Made for those who know how to appreciate wine. And for those who know how to appreciate life.
AIX is a well-balanced premium Provence rosé with a typical hypnotising salmon pink colour. The nose is fresh and fragrant, delicate yet youthful with sophisticated notes of fresh red fruits, peach and subtle flower hints. It offers roundness on the palate and a beautiful aromatic depth, before finding freshness and some minerality in its long and precise finish.
A classic Provencal blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. About 30% of the wine is bled and 70% direct press. The producer’s of AIX strive for a consistent rose style year after year, with little vintage variation, similar to well known Champagne houses. AIX strikes a balance between being that quintessential summer sipper with fresh red fruit and crispness and being more complex and serious.
