A wine for the rosé amateurs and the rosé haters.

Producer: Cave de Lumières, Goult, France.

Chateau Thourame is a noble Provençal fortification built in the 15th century near Bonnieux, on the northern side of the Luberon mountain. The vines grow at the property, as they have for years, in limestone and clay soil which retains water well. This rosé is made at the Cave de Lumières in the nearby town of Goult.
Making this wine means following the “saignée” method of rosé winemaking. It involves “bleeding” off a portion of red wine juice after it’s been in contact with the skins and seeds. The result is a stronger and more complex wine than some other Provence rosés, which can be a bit weak or soulless.

What we say: "This palatable wine boasts a summery grapefruit colour. The taste is deep and round; this is more of a mineral rosé than a fruity one. Nevertheless, you'll find a few hints of peaches and elegant floral notes. A complex yet approachable rosé that is very easy to drink at “l’apéritif” but is also the perfect pairing partner to most summer dishes."
