Rimauresq is named for the river Real Mauresque that traverses the domaine. This 60 hectare property was reestablished in 1882 after the phylloxera epidemic devastated the region. Domaine de Rimauresq was also one of the original fourteen Cru Classé producers that received historical Cru designation even before the appellation board named Cotes de Provence as an AOC. These historic properties still produce some of the most sought-after and long-lived rosés of the region. The 2017 rosé is a blend of 43% Grenache, 24% Cinsault, 10% Mourvedre, 8% Syrah, 6% Carignan and 9% Rolle. The grapes undergo a light maceration when harvested and are then gently pressed. No malolactic fermentation occurs keeping acidity fresh and lively and the wine undergoes a light filtration for clarity. A perfect summer rosé for any classic Mediterranean fare.
