Les Trois Provence Rose 2017
Les Trois was created by Guillaume de Chevron of Chateau Colbert Cannet as a classically expressive Provence Rose. Provence creates a famously elegant, pale and dry expression of Rose due to a warm Mediterranean climate, abundant sunshine and well protected vineyards.
The French Appellation system is driven by the concept of Terroir – that wine grown in a particular location has a distinct individual character, created by that region’s unique combination of the key factors “Les Trois” – geography, geology and climate. Les Trois was created by Guillaume de Chevron of Chateau Colbert Cannet as a classically expressive, pale and dry Provence Rose.
The Les Trois Cotes de Provence Rose is a combination of Cinsault and Grenache given a very cool fermentation in stainless steel to maximise fruit expression and extended maturation on less to build complexity. Very pale pink in colour. The nose is aromatic and sweetly perfumed with aromas of strawberries and rose petals. The palate is legant and effortless with light berry and candied fruit drop flavours lingering long on a soft, dry finish.
Restrained and delicate, the bouquet shows apple, white flesh nectarine and subtle jasmine characters. It's subtle and fine with elegant fruit weight and bright acidity, offering charm and lovely drinkability. At its best: now to 2021.
