2011 Domaine D’Eole Provence Rosé
We recently had the opportunity to taste a line-up of 10 or 12 fine Southern French rosés from the 2011 vintage. Domaine d’Eole was the clear favorite out of the tasting. Eole’s vineyards are planted to six traditional Provençal red varieties, Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Counoise, Mourvedre & Carignan, and are farmed 100% organically. This six grape blend gives the wine an excellent level of complexity, this combined with the wine’s perfect acid balance and abundant flavors makes this an amazingly food-friendly rosé. This one rises above the general class of warm weather sippers into the realm of interesting and satisfying fine wines. We recently served Domaine d’Eole with a grilled salmon with an apricot glaze that had guests raving!
The 2011 Classement of France’s prestigious Revue du Vin de France ranks Eole among the Top 20 domaines in all of Provence.
