Domaine de Sulauze 'Pomponette' Rosé, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, France 2022
This is your quintessential summer rosé. Made by Karina and Guillaume Lefèvre, who met hiking across Corsica, together they have built a family and domaine in the tiny village of Miramas in the Côteaux d'Aix-en-Provence appellation. The family biodynamically farms 29 hectares of traditional Provençal red and white varieties grown in a friable limestone soil known as "Lauze," from which the winery takes its name, Domaine de Sulauze. Elegant with underripe red fruits, watermelon, tension, and a lovely mineral component.

Grapes: 60% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, 5% Vermentino
Soil: Flaky limestone with excellent drainage that protects vines from temperature variations
