DOMAINE HOUCHART

COTES DE PROVENCE ROSE 2019


A self-described 'un-put-down-able' 90-point crowd-pleasing rosé wine that's not only less than $18, but it's also been named a 'Top 100 Best Buy', in 2018 and 2019 in Wine Enthusiast.

A family-run affair, Domaine Houchart is located at the foot of Mount St. Victoire near Aix en Provence and part of the new, elevated appellation 'St. Victoire'. Houchart Rosé is known for its out-of-this-world freshness, and is a classic Provencal blend that's attractive, full and ripe, bursting with berry and peach notes. The vineyard is now run by CEO Florence Quiot, an inspirational woman in wine and the 13th generation of the legendary winemaking family, along with her brother, head winemaker, Jean-Baptiste.

Regarding the 2019 vintage, "The aging on lees suited the 2019 year superbly and lengthened the mouth and finish" says Ms. Quiot. Cultivated from 222 acres of clay and limestone, Houchart Rosé's special freshness comes from the unique method of harvesting, where the grapes are immediately placed in gondolas filled with CO2 gas and covered with thermal blankets, to exclude oxygen and keep the grapes cool under the hot Provençal sun.
