Domaine de Rimauresque Cru Classe is a highly reputed estate situated on the Cotes du Provence. Its exceptional ''terroir'', recognised through its Cru Classé status, results in wines of elegance and complexity with long term cellaring potential. The estate encompasses 57 hectares of prime vineyards with an average vine age of 40 years (the oldest being planted in 1930). The vineyards are located at an altitude of between 140 to 190 metres, just 35km from the coast, and are aided by a North-West orientation. The micro climate at Rimauresq is unique within the Appellation. Situated on the harsh mineral soils at the foothills of the Maures Massif, the vines are lucky enough to get the benefit not only of the cooling Mistral winds but are protected by the sheltering effects of the mountain from the harsh Mediterranean sun. It is this shade that allows a longer ripening period and better fruit development in the crucial weeks prior to harvest. Delicate and pale in colour, yet with real concentration and weight due to the 70 year old vines used to produce these 'R' wines. This is one of the best and most classic of Provence rosé styles - lifted floral and redcurrant aromas with delicate red fruit and a touch of spice on the palate.

"A lovely combination of fruits and vegetal aromas, with hints of walnut and earth. The palate is a masterclass in delicacy, with almonds, strawberries, green apple and a hint of salinity, but also good textural richness and strength. Keen and finely concentrated, with a long, lemony finish." Decanter 2014
