Aix is one of the few brands in the world where a producer is just as well known as the region – in this case, both are incredibly special. Here, the vineyards are sprawled high up in the hills over 400 meters above sea level, one of the highest in all of Provence. They have outrageously minerally soil there, 300 days of sunshine a year on average and an extraordinarily high amount of natural morning dew, making their fruit even more stinking delicious than it already was.
Here, the unrelenting dedication into making some of the world’s most premium Rose using the traditional Provencal grapes of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah have put not just the winery firmly in the world’s spotlight, but brought the whole sub-region of Provence along for the ride.
This year, like every year, the Aix Coteaux d’Aix comes highly recommended. Whether it outshined and outscored a famous Bandol Rose for the top spot on the Wall Street Journal list or the 90-point score it just got from James Suckling (what will be the first of many this year if history continues).
There’s a lot to love if you’re a Rose fan– a super fresh and lifted nose of peach, tangerine, cherry and hints of flowers, with a high-toned pristine palate of ripe peach, strawberry and orange blossom with some beautiful mineral notes and a long and precise finish. It really is the belle of the ball and the quintessential springtime treat.
