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 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 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.
Wow, fully dry Rose from Provence at (well) under $20.00 per bottle. Astounding drinking!
