2012 Cotes de Provence Rose
Domaine Fouquette 2012 Cotes de Provence Rose
This crisp, dry rose is the quintessential Provencal style, made from a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, and Rolle. It offers lovely citrus and strawberry aromas and flavors, with punchy watermelon notes on the palate. Finishes with the slight note of dried herbs. It is fruity yet delicate, perfect to enjoy with a classic Provencal dishes like bouillabaisse, dungness crab salad, or crusty bread with a the traditional Provencal tapenade of olives, capers, anchovy, and garlic.
No longer inspired in their former vocations, Isabelle and Jean-Pierre Daziano decided to follow their shared passion and agreed to take over the 35 acre vineyard and farm of Isabelle's family. Nestled into a forested plain amid the Massif des Maures mountains, Domaine de la Fouquette sits in the heart of the Cotes de Provence appellation. Isabelle helps her parents run Fouquette's charming auberge. She and her mother tantalize tourist at the 45-seat farmhouse restaurant with traditional Provencal recipes handed down from the grand-mere and made only with locally grown or raised products.
