Roseblood Rosé stands as the flagship cuvée, meticulously crafted to showcase elegance and subtle complexity. Under the skilled orchestration of Technical Director Victor Joyeux, this exceptional blend is sourced from Coteaux Varois en Provence vineyards. Comprising Grenache, Syrah, and Rolle, it results in a harmonious composition of flavors. It comes in an elegant, playful, and bold packaging. The serpent serves as a symbol of seductive power, while the rose represents vitality and infuses floral, both embodying the essence of Château d’Estoublon’s “Garden of Eden”.

Vineyard

In the heart of Coteaux Varois en Provence, Roseblood’s vineyards sprawl across hillsides at elevations ranging from 1,100 to 1,600 feet. They thrive in a climate characterized by mild continental influences, where gentle autumns and springs alternate with occasionally torrid summers and colder, harsher winters compared to the rest of the region. Renowned for its red earth soils, this wine region predominantly features vines thriving in clay-limestone terrains, complemented by pockets of flint and gravel. This distinctive terroir imparts a harmonious blend of expression, freshness, balance and roundness to the wines.

Winemaking

In this blend of four emblematic Provençal grape varietals, each plays a distinctive role: Grenache noir 65%, Syrah 15%, Cinsault 15% and Rolle 5%. Grenache contributes roundness, delicacy, and subtle aromas, while Syrah adds power and color. Cinsault, known for finesse and fruity notes, gently balances the strength provided by Grenache and Syrah. Rolle, the iconic white grape of Provence, introduces a touch of tension, freshness, and floral notes to complete this well-balanced blend. The grapes are pressed directly, followed by a cold alcoholic fermentation process. Vinification and maturation unfold in stainless steel tanks and concrete vats, meticulously preserving the freshness and natural aromas inherent in the terroir and grape varieties. Aging for several weeks on fine lees imparts complexity and smoothness to the wine, all the while upholding Roseblood’s signature elegance and delicacy.

Vintage

While a dry winter and hot summer proved favorable for the vines, heavy spring rains and late summer storms proved to be challenging. Harvest occurred in October.

Tasting Notes

Luminous pale eau-de-rose color with hints of peach and melon. The nose is expressive, with notes of raspberry and tangy wild berries. The attack is frank and elegant. The harmony of the grape varieties expresses itself on the palate with citrus notes, followed by a beautiful tension that accompanies the wine throughout its length.

Food Pairing

Ideal to pair with an aperitif, a sesame tuna tataki with crisp garden vegetables or spinach ricotta ravioli with fresh basil leaves and a drizzle of olive oil.
