Domaine des Mapliers is our latest discovery in top end roses from Provence. This beautiful estate owned by Jean and Nathalie Gallo is the former source of Domaines Ott's Coeur de Grains. Now made as a single vineyard wine. It is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon: the Cabernet component giving it a rich mouthfeel and a little bite of tannin which makes it a great food wine. If there is a better rose from Cotes de Provence we want to know about it. Serious stuff

The Region

Provence Wines

Provence

Provence is perhaps the most picturesque of France's wine regions with azure coasts and lavender fields. There has been a tsunami of rosé flooding our shores from this region, some of it of questionable quality, but in the majority the wines are extremely likeable and in some instances, outstanding.

We are particularly fond of Domaine des Mapliers for their sophisticated and gastronomic style, but who can forget Chateau d'Esclans for their Whispering Angel which is nothing short of a phenomenon. The very best examples in our opinion come from the world class estate of Domaine Tempier producing outstanding wines in all three colours.
