Featured by Terry Kirby in The Independent:

"From an ancient ‘Cru Classe’ vineyard in the heart of Provence, an utterly sublime blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah, a lovely pale pink colour that conceals knock out flavours of grapefruit, tangerine, herbs and a touch of spice. Ideal for Bouillabaisse or other tomato-based fish and vegetable dishes."

The Cuvée Marie-Christine rosé is made exclusively from an 89 hectare Cru Classé parcel, located on the plains of Pierrefeu. The mineral rich terroir of red clay and limestone soils in this parcel provide good drainage and the vines receive a cooling ventilation from the salty Mistral winds blowing in from the sea just a few miles away. Château Aumerade holds the Haute Valeur Environmentale (HVE) certification, which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use and water resource management.

The harvest took place at the beginning of September and the grapes were immediately destemmed. The berries were gently pressed and the juice was carefully selected and cooled to 13°C. Following a static settling, fermentation took place at controlled temperatures of 15 to 18°C, in stainless steel tanks and lasted for 10 days. Racking and blending took place at the end of the year. The Cuvée Marie-Christine was named after Henri and Charlotte Fabre's first daughter and the unique bottle shape was designed by Charlotte Fabre, herself a talented artist. She was inspired by the work of Émile Gallé, who is considered to be one of the major forces in the Art Nouveau movement.
