Domaine de Rimauresq R Reserve Rose 2019

The estate encompasses 57 hectares of prime vineyards with an average vine age of 40 years (the
oldest being planted in 1930). The vineyards are located at an altitude of between 140 to 190 metres,
just 35km from the coast and are aided by a North-West orientation. The micro climate at Rimauresq
is unique within the Appellation. Situated on the harsh mineral soils at the foothills of the Maures
Massif, the vines benefit not only of the cooling Mistral winds but are sheltered by the mountains from
the harsh Mediterranean sun. It is this shade that allows a longer ripening period and better fruit
development in the crucial weeks prior to harvest. The terroir itself is of schist, pink sandstone and
gravelly soil. It is this diversity that allows Rimauresq to excel in all three colours red, white and rosé.
Also, replacement planting is ensuring an increased vine density of up to 5,000 vines per hectare in an
ongoing drive to improve quality. Nine noble grape varieties are found at Rimauresq: Syrah,
Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan for the reds, Rolle (Vermentino) and Ugni Blanc for the
whites and Cinsault, Mourvedre and Tibouren for the rosés. Only the best fruit from the vineyards is
kept to craft the wines and selected old vine fruit is used for the “R” rose
