The Story

From the owners of the highly esteemed Chateauneuf-du-Pape property Mont-Redon comes this delightful gem of a rosé. The 94 hectare (232 acre) Château Riotor property is located in the heart of Provence, in the commune of Cannet des Maures, thirty kilometers from the Mediterranean coast and Saint Tropez.  Vineyards cover fifty hectares (125 acres) in two delimited areas:  thirty-eight hectares in the Côtes de Provence appellation and an adjoining twelve in the Vin de Pays des Maures. The vines are cultivated in sandy soils with a high degree of red schist characteristic of these appellations, resulting in low yields and concentrated fruit, essential to producing great wines.  The climate is typical of the Mediterranean basin, with hot, dry summers that are cooled by marine breezes from the sea.
