At the foot of the Sainte Victoire mountain, 15 kms from Aix en Provence, in the commune of Puyloubier, this domaine was bought in 1890 by Aurélien Houchart, a negociant and friend of Cézanne and great-grand father of Geneviève Quiot. This family estate has been farmed since Roman times, some distance away from the “Via Aurelia”. 

Aurélien Houchart created one of the largest estates in Provence. The Domaine was later divided amongst his five children and Geneviève Quiot inherited 50 hectares of vines from her grandfather. She runs the Domaine today. Located 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; 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.

Tasting Notes

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, charcuterie, salads and sun-drenched summer afternoons.

Method

This Cote de Provence rose is a blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.  The grapes grow on clay and limestone soils formed from the decomposition of the mother rock from the surrounding mountains. This rose is made by direct pressing, with cold maceration lasting 12-24 hours.  All varieties are fermented separately in tanks for 12 to 24 days at 18 degrees Celcius.
