FLEUR DE MER

Côtes de Provence Rosé

Throughout the rolling hills and valleys of Provence, fields of lavender thrive in the warm sun and fresh, crisp seaside air. In French, Fleur de Mer means “Flower of the Sea.”

Our wine celebrates the region’s famed fields of flowers and vines that bask in the warm summer sun. An elegant Provençal Rosé, Fleur de Mer honors the region’s 2,600-year-old historical tradition of crafting incredible Rosé wines.

Invitingly flavorful and refreshingly crisp, Fleur de Mer Rosé captures the serene artistry of Provence’s idyllic, sunny coastal shores and fragrant, floral hillsides. A classic, silky smooth Provençal Rosé, Fleur de Mer opens with aromas of white peach and summer strawberries, complemented by hints of florals. These notes carry through on the bright, expressive palate, layered with raspberry and cranberry characteristics framed by Fleur de Mer’s hallmark crisp, refreshing hints of salinity, reminiscent of sea spray.

Versatile and food-friendly, enjoy Fleur de Mer on its own or alongside a wide range of dishes, from creamy goat cheeses, charcuterie and fresh green salads to grilled chicken with herbs, roasted pork tenderloin or fresh seafood dishes.

VITICULTURE NOTES

2023 Vintage

The world’s best-known region for Rosé, AOP Côtes de Provence enjoys a refreshing Mediterranean climate of warm days and cool, brisk nights. Here, vine roots plunge deep below the dry clay soils and limestone gravel, called gravoches, to reach water. Vintage 2022 was outstanding, delivering concentrated, high quality fruit. An ideal dry spring resulted in a wonderful fruit set, followed by a warm, dry growing season. Careful canopy management allowed clusters to develop bright, expressive flavors, intense aromatics and the crisp structure of Provençal Rosé.

WINEMAKING NOTES

2023 Vintage

The grapes selected for our 2023 Fleur de Mer Rosé were harvested at ideal maturity, ensuring wonderful flavors and delicate structure. Grapes were picked in the cool early morning hours, then crushed, immediately pressed and cold settled to maintain the bright, concentrated fruit characteristics and attractive coral hue. Lots were fermented in cool, temperature-controlled tanks. Winemaker Florian Lacroux selected Grenache, Cinsault and Carignan to form the core of the blend, supported by other extraordinary Provençal grapes in a beautifully harmonious, layered Rosé wine.
