Chateau Montaud Cotes de Provence Rose Magnum
This exceptional, pale and inviting Provence Rose is both elegant and fresh with mineral notes to underpin it and zesty citrus touches to enliven the palate. Generously fruited on the palate, it is rounded with red fruits dominant and it culminates in a long, refreshing finish. It makes a terrific aperitif but also is a perfect partner to seafood, shellfish and a wide variety of Provencal dishes. Great value for a magnum!

About the grower
The Vignobles Ravel Group were founded back in 1951. The Chateau Montaud is to be found halfway between St Tropez and Marseille and is now the headquarters of the group.
Situated on the site of an old Roman settlement, the vineyards benefit from the Mediterranean climate where summers are hot and winters just cool. The winemaking philosophy is to achieve low yields, to not permit irrigation of the vineyards and to only harvest when perfect ripeness has been achieved.
A typically Provencal grape blend of Grenache Noir, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvedre give a wine that is both complex and fruity, a great expression of Cotes de Provence Rose.
