Palette Rosé one of the oldest Provence Appelations
Not far from Aix-en-Provence is one of the smallest (and oldest) regions of origin in France: Palette. The appellation - one of the best kept secrets in France - has only 43 hectares, so there are only five producers who make wine there. The most famous is the historic Château Simone, but Stéphane Spitzglous from Château Henri Bonnaud is also working hard!
Palette received his AOP award in 1948 for its special limestone terroir. This sets Palette apart from the rest of Provence. Stéphane knows this terroir like the back of his hand. He grew up with his grandfather, who ran the wine estate. In 1996 he was allowed to take over from his grandfather.
The passionate Stéphane now cultivates his 14 hectares of vineyards organically. He sees vibrant soils and biodiversity as conditions for authentic wines. Stéphane harvests the mourvèdre, grenache and cinsault for his rosé by hand, in small crates of up to 15 kilos. This is how the grapes arrive in the cellar in the best possible condition.
To make the rosé, Stéphane drains some of the juice from the red wine. He then ages the rosé for eight months, 80% in stainless steel tanks and 20% in small French oak casks. This ensures that the wine is nicely structured and smooth at the same time.
The end result is an extremely refined rosé with floral, fruity and salty notes. Remarkably elegant with an exquisite balance between freshness, ripe fruit notes and a richly variegated long finish. Preferably drink this gourmet wine at the table, with Provencal fish dishes, for example.
