Lumiére de Provence Rosé 2018
Varieties
Cinsault, Grenache, Rolle, Syrah
Region
AOC Coteaux Varois en Provence (Provence)
Terroir
Lumière de Provence comes from several terroirs which complement each other perfectly. Some vines are situated on the Roquebrussanne plateau, an enclave sitting between limestone and dolomitic mountains. Its rocky soil ensures good drainage of excess water and the retention of the summer heat. This fine, elegant rosé also derives freshness from the slopes of Seillons-Source-d’Argens, where the wines surround the village at nearly 400 metres altitude. Its clay-limestone soil is an excellent terroir particularly for the cultivation of the Grenache, Rolle and Syrah. This small hilltop village is also home to a treasure hidden away in its subsoil: water mines, a geological and hydrological feature that the vines love. Lastly, Lumière is created from grapes vinified in our facilities near Brignoles in the Var region, where we produce high-end rosé wines.
Winemaking notes
The grapes are mainly harvested very early in the night in order to ensure that the wine has a very pale appearance.  A short maceration on the skins is performed before pressing. The juices are settled at low temperature. Alcoholic fermentation is temperature-controlled and malolactic fermentation is prevented. Vinification is carried out in temperature controlled stainless steel vats in the traditional manner.
Colour
Bright, shiny pale pink hue.
Nose
Great finesse on the nose, with notes of citrus and pink grapefruit.
Palate
Silky and smooth on the palate with a lovely balance between the wine’s freshness and its silky body, leading to an appetizing finish.
Comments
A delectable rose from a rigorous selection of less than 10% of our finest wines in the Coteaux Varois en Provence AOC, the result of Estandon Vignerons commitment to the AgriConfiance certification.

Reviews
94 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  This is stylish and instantly appealing on the nose showing ripe strawberry, stone fruit, apple and subtle spice aromas, followed by a concentrated palate that is refined and elegant. The wine offers bright fruit intensity and silky mouthfeel, leading to a lengthy lively finish.
93 points (5 Stars) – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix  First impressions are what an attractive colour, clear and starbright pale pink. This leads to aromas of lifted strawberry, stone fruit, hints of confectionary complex and inviting. The palate is active and complex with mix of fresh red fruits balanced by good crisp green apple acid, finishing tight and lively. A great example of French Provence Rose.
92 points (4 Stars) – Nick Butler, The Real Review  As orange as it is pink in colour. Rhubarb, minerals, fresh raspberries. A soft glide on the palate - slippery - fruit drives the back palate. Lovely length.
