‘La Commanderie de la Bargemone' was founded in the 13th Century & is located 10 miles away from the historic city of Aix-en-Provence. In 1250 AD - The Knights Templar built their compound of buildings known as ‘'La Commanderie'' in the heart of the surrounding farm fields.
In 1968 - The vineyards were replanted on a large scale with 300 acres (120 hectares) in production.
The vineyard ‘'La Commanderie ‘' is a traditional Provence vineyard that has been dedicated to producing Rosé (90+%) & White (10%) ‘'Côteaux d'Aix en Provence'' of the highest quality for few decades. The vineyard essentially represents a single terroir, with almost identical soils and exposures, aiding the production of wine of remarkably consistent quality with production of selected grapes such as Sauvignon Blanc, Rolle, Syrah, Counoise, Caladoc, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon.
Viticulture and winemaking are 100% organic and certified organic by EU. This is literally the beating heart of ‘'La Commanderie''.
The aroma profile of this elegant, naturally produced rosé is complex and fruity, but the fruity notes are not too intense in the foreground and leave enough room for other accents. Strawberries and other red fruits are noticeable, along with notes of watermelon, peach and Citrus fruit. Hints of rose petals, spices and grass set interesting accents on the palate. Above all, there is a radiant minerality and fresh tartaric acidity, which are pleasantly contrasted by a silky-smooth nature. The wine finishes refreshingly with citrus tones.
