About This Wine:

Ramatuelle produces a  mouth-watering wine from old-vines (40 years average, the oldest over 100 years old!), at a very affordable price.  Made from 85% Tibouren - or Rossese di Dolceacqua - is a red French grape that is primarily grown in Provence and Liguria. It originated in Greece or possibly the Middle East. Intensely aromatic with an earthy bouquet that wine expert Jancis Robinson describes as garrigue, Tibouren is often used in the production of rosés and is grown almost exclusively in Provence.

In concert with an impressive list of sustainable-minded growers, Domaine de Ramatuelle is not actually located in Ramatuelle, but further inland in Brignoles, one of the many historic and charming villages that are peppered about the sprawling hillsides of Côtes de Provence.  The grapes come from two communes – Ramatuelle and Gassin, located just below the world-favorite destination of Saint-Tropez.

Within these two communes, Ramatuelle’s team of growers farms 35 small, unique, sandy-schist parcels that are predominately old vines mainly planted in the 1950s—with some planted in the early 1900s!

Tasting Notes:
In the glass, a highly reflective salmon pink with silver hues, with notes of white peach, Rainier cherry, Ruby Red grapefruit, watermelon rind, citrus blossoms, tangerine peel, crushed stones, garrigue, rose water, and steely minerality.  It’s fresh, mineral, and creamy all at once, with a historic pedigree and a deep connection to the dusty soils and fragrant scrubland of Provence.

Varietal: 85% Tibouren, 15% Grenache
