Côtes de Provence: 2009 Domaine du Clos de La Procure Rouge

Yes, Provence – that’s “Nostra Provincia” (‘our province’) to any self-respecting Roman, reigns supreme as the world’s greatest source of rosé. However, the region offers more than just bottled blush. Case in point: 2009 Domaine du Clos de La Procure Rouge, a blend of 50-year-old Grenache and Mourvèdre vines, with a deft touch of Carignan, Cinsault and Syrah.

Tasting notes: Garrigue, indeed – discrete aromas of limestone-parched wild rosemary, thyme, lavender, and scrub exude from this deep crimson, medium-bodied pour. Clean finish, moderate tannins and acids. Pairs well with herbed cheeses and Mediterranean small plates.

This little Bandol beauty from vigneron Dupréré Barrera is available through Kermit Lynch. Santé!
