Monsieur Paul was making his wine during WW2. He’s now in his 90s and still going strong! When he was a boy his family were the last remaining to bring in the grapes as the rest of the village marched away to war. Moulin de Pontfract survived and continues to prosper today. Even after the rich and famous flocked to Provence and his neighbouring town of Correns, buying up vineyards to make pricey rosés – nudge-nudge B Pitt and A Jolie! – Monsieur Paul batted away the glitz and stuck to his winemaking roots. Whilst he may not be doing the back-breaking work of harvest anymore, he’s still there, perched on the hilltop with a walkie-talkie directing the pickers. And his rosé is as good as ever – fresh and fruity with strawberry charm.
Jancis Robinson MW, like many top experts, believes “the quintessential rosé comes from the South of France”. And, coming from Saint Tropez (‘the playground of the rich and famous’), this exceptional rosé has to be one of the very best value examples of all. As you’d expect from this star studded part of France, this irresistible pink is supremely elegant with lovely raspberry fruit, yet with a subtle savoury edge and brisk minerality to keep the wine nicely edgy. Crafted from a range of traditional grape varieties, carefully cool fermented to capture all the fruit and freshness in bottle. Serve with seafood favourites such as crab or lobster, pan-seared tuna or grilled king prawns. It’s also great with creamy vegetarian dishes.
Provence is France’s premier rosé region and Domaine de Paris is one of its most stylish and elegant. A previous vintage even gained mention in the prestigious US journal Wine Spectator: “Very good – a wine with special qualities. Dry and refined, with dried berry and cherry flavors and plenty of minerally notes.” The estate has been owned since 1900 by three generations of the Brun family. 50-year-old Syrah and Grenache vines produce fruit of superb concentration and impeccable purity. There’s a tantalising steely freshness, a flinty backbone coupled with wild strawberries and a lovely savoury note. Fine Provence rosé is not just for summer! The locals enjoy it all year round, on its own or with seafood, chicken, fennel risotto or salads.
