2017 Domaine de Saint Ser Cotes de Provence Cuvee Prestige Rose

$22

A blend of Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah giving this rosé unusual complexity. In the glass there is aromatic intensity, finesse, and ripe fruit. This is a serious rosé that can stand up to food yet also be enjoyed by itself. It’s refreshing, elegant, and explosive with notes of ripe stone fruit, vanilla, orange blossom, juicy strawberries and raspberries. Great with light fish dishes.

A bit of history behind Saint-Ser from Domaine Saint-Ser website: “St. Victoire: land of legend, magic light… Born in Lyon in the 5th century, Saint Ser was a hermit who retired to a cave in the Sainte-Victoire Mountain. His exemplary virtues and his Christian faith attracted many followers and formed a model for the country’s inhabitants. In that time, Euric, Visigoth ruler, violent and cruel, fiercely hostile to the church, ruled Provence. His worst opponent was Saint Ser. Around the year 484, refusing to submit and contemptuous threats, Saint Ser was beheaded by the emissaries of Euric. The place of execution was that of his tomb and his memory remained venerated throughout the country. Today, the chapel of Saint-Ser, built in a mountain cave, remains a place of pilgrimage where the inhabitants of Puyloubier…travel each year on May 24th for religious worship. Thus, thanks to its geographical location and its family name, the Domaine Saint-Ser can hope to be part of the natural, cultural history of Provence.”
