2007 Chateau Revelette Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rose

Chateau Revelette Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rose

Peter Fischer caught the wine bug young. Born in Germany, he spent his formative years in California and studied enology at UC-Davis before moving to Provence to work with local legend Emmanuel Gaujal. When Peter struck out on his own, he looked at dozens of properties before he discovered the perfectly situated Chateau Revelette.

Fischer once explained that he'd gotten into winemaking because he thought it would be a great way to make friendships and meet new people. Though often described as a visionary, he must be something of a prophet: ten years after the his family purchased Chateau Revelette, Fischer met his future bride--the daughter of the domaine's previous proprietors!

Today, Chateau Revelette is one of the jewels of Provence. Located near the quaint town of Jouques, this is the arriere-pays of romance novels and Hollywood films. Sunny days are whiled away on park benches, villagers gather for games of Petanque, and meals are boisterous, crowded events around thick-planked farmhouse tables.

This rosé wine is a blend of 50% Syrah, 25% Grenache and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon.

While the Chateau Revelette Rose works perfectly as an apertif, try it with seafood as well. Pair this wine with sauteed calimari tossed with tomatoes and herbs.
