Domaine Houchart Rose (750ml)
Cotes de Provence
In the 1850s Aurélien Houchart created one of the largest domains in Provence. The Domaine was later divided amongst his five children and Geneviève Quiot inherited 50 hectares of vines from her grandfather and runs the Domaine today. Located at about 25km east of Aix-En-Provence, the vines are old, between 30 and 50 years, and the grape varieties grown are typical to Provence; Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Carignan, Mourvedre and Cabernet Sauvignon. With 50 hectares under vine, there is a variety of soil types; sandy, chalky, clay and silt which ensures that the vines have proper drainage and produce and grapes that can develop a variety of interesting characteristics.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah. Houchart Rosé has delicate citrus and strawberry aromas that carry onto the palate and develop into flavours of field berries, watermelon and mineral notes. A quintessential provencal rose that is clean and refreshing. Enjoy as an aperitif, with smoked salmon, salads and pretending Spring is just around the corner!
