Château des Demoiselles | Sustainable & Gorgeous
Since Château des Demoiselles boasts such advantageous terroir, a lot of the work was done when Bernard Teillaud purchased the 740-acre estate in 2005. But the work continues on the crush pad and in the cellar, where meticulous pains are taken to transform the estate’s supremely concentrated grapes into a rosé of mouthwatering freshness.
What results is the epitome of Provence rosé. Château des Demoiselles Côtes de Provence Rosé 2018 presents as a salmon-pink wine that boasts generous red and stone fruit, buzzing with energy, seasoned by the sea spray and cleansed by the constant Provençal breeze. Barely in the bottle and just a few months after harvest. Château des Demoiselles Côtes de Provence Rosé 2018 just arrived on American shores and is absolutely singing. At this price, put away a case and enjoy into the dog days of summer.
Côtes de Provence
So, imagine whipping along D25 through Provence-Alpes-Côte D’Azur. Overhead, the sky is an azure blue; humped along the horizon lie the foothills of the Estérel massif. To your left and right stretch rows of vines rooted in brick-red soils of clay and limestone, poor but well-draining. The southern sun beats down hot, relieved by the brisk, cooling gusts of the Mistral. Here in the legendary Esclans Valley, these elemental conditions lend themselves to the freshness, concentration, and fragrant aromatics that make for some of the world’s greatest roses.
Château Demoiselles is not only located in this famed region, but it sits in the appellation’s most prestigious area. While just a stone’s throw from where Château d’Esclans produces the world-famous “Whispering Angel,” and their $100-per-bottle Garrus Rosé.
