Côtes du Rhône Rosé

Appellation d'origine protégée
Cotes du Rhone
After a mild and dry winter, a spring without frost and a particularly hot summer, harvesting began several days later than 2015, with the grape varieties being picked late August/ early September. During the harvest, weather conditions were truly exceptional, with warm clear days, fresh nights and some occasional light rainfall, stretching from early September all the way until the end of October. The sanitary state of the grapes throughout the region was excellent. So, this year again, the 2016 vintage is very qualitative, particularly for southern appellations.

Côtes du Rhône Rosé


This Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault grapes from clay limestone soils from the 2 banks of the Rhone river. With a Mediterranean climate renowned for its contrasts, it endures the summer heat and Mistral wind.


Each grape variety is vinified individually. The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed with fermentation at low temperature. Racking off clear juices and blocking of the malolactic fermentation. Blending of the different grapes varieties takes place in December and bottled just after in order to capture all the freshness and fruit notes.
Vegan Friendly.

Born during the 3rd century in Spain, Saint Vincent has been considered as the patron saint of winegrowers. Given that “Vincent” means “triumphant” in Latin, the choice of this name for our cuvée needs no further explanation !
