Rosé wines are a predominant part of the production. H&B Provence Rosé is a refreshing, charming and floral wine, everything which makes a rosé from Provence one of a kind.
H&B Provence rosé in the basket of a picnic among lavender fields and olive trees or just before a gentle nap in the shadow of a hundred years old plane tree while lulled by the song of the cicadas… H&B Provence rosé along for a play of pétanque on a nice little square of a Provence village… H&B Provence rosé in the heat of the long summer evenings when chatting and having fun with friends near the pool.
“For our selection, we focused on the cooler parts of the vineyard from the limestone foothills of Montagne Sainte Victoire, whose wines are almost marked by a vivacious and persistent minerality, to the vineyards of upper Provence. There, the clay-limestone soils and the oak and olive forests protect the vines and, in some ways, seem to nourish them. The higher altitudes also allow full maturity without excessive sugars (and therefore alcoholic degree in the finished wines).
Our vineyards are harvested at night between 3.00am and 9.00am in order to avoid oxidation and to preserve all of the fresh characteristics of vineyard and varietal. And it is our personal decision to avoid excessive maceration and extraction leading to wines that are at once concentrated but not opaque. Grenache and Cinsault are macerated together so that their personalities and qualities intermingle.” -Gregory Hecht
Well balanced wine with great acidity and a refined finish. It has tasty rose water and chalk notes, with flavors of white cherry, peach, strawberry and cantaloupe. Fruity, crisp, fresh and ready to drink!
