Story

The story
Our Cascavel Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Rosé benefits from the expertise of winegrowers based in the northwest of the city of Aix-en-Provence. The winery where our Cascavel Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence Rosé is produced is a very famous historical wine cellar of the area, whose production is characterized by aromatic complex wines, while maintaining a certain tension proper to the appellation. Since we launched this wine it has been a great success, which shows that it was the right choice. The wine matches with a shared request for a high quality rosé, with the typical color of the wines of this region.
Location
The vineyard is organically-grown and located in the north-west of Aix-en-Provence. A major effort is made to encourage biodiver-sity throughout the vineyard and its surroundings in an environment of coteaux and pinewood. The local micro-climate is warm, tempered by the Mistral and the altitude of the massif surrounding the plots.
Terroir
Grenache and Syrah take advantage of an exceptional exposition, while benefiting from the "refreshing" effects of the Mistral and surroun-ding massifs. The plots also benefit from the influences of the Mediterranean Sea, favoring balance, elegance and liveliness, typical of the appellation's wines.
