Lumiére de Provence Rosé 2019

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.

Awards

Gold Medal - Vinalies Internationales Competition 2020
Under its engaging lychee dress, this unusual Var hillside in Provence provides us with aromas of mirabelle plums and cherry blossoms. In short, it's spring ... The palate continues to seduce with its freshness and hush. It is a wine with tender acidity and a soft finish of fresh butter. A Var hillside in Provence that goes as well for an aperitif or with a filet of Saint-Pierre with seaweed.

Reviews

94 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 

This is gorgeously fruited and fragrant on the nose showing watermelon, apricot, apple and floral characters, leading to a deliciously expressed palate that's light and refreshing. Very tasty and comforting.

 

94 points (5 Stars) – Leo Daly, Wine Matrix 

This Provence French rosé from Estandon is a very cleverly made marriage of four varietals that has won me over. The wine has a pale pink hue. A tight nose, some floral notes eventually appear. The palate has a crisp introduction but also quite smooth. Some strawberry and citrus flavours linger and the finish is firm.
