Rimauresq Cru Classé Rouge, Côtes de Provence (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
This forward-thinking winery in the heart of the Provence wine region is one of the select group of Côtes de Provence vineyards awarded Cru Classé status in 1955, a classification mirroring that of the great Bordeaux châteaux and based on the quality of the wines and heritage of the properties.
Rimauresq Cru Classé Rouge, Côtes de Provence 2014 is more characterful and fuller-bodied than a Bordeaux Cru Classé but still surprisingly elegant. The nose is inviting with wonderful redcurrant, plum and blackberry aromas with hints of black pepper. The palate has more concentrated fruit: blackberry, redcurrant and tart blackcurrants, a velvety mouthfeel and structure as well as freshness and a tasty chewy texture. A fabulous partner to roast lamb, young game, dishes rich in Provençale herbs and roast Mediterranean vegetables.
