Clos des Trois Sources

Provence, provence France

The Clos des Trois Sources vineyard has been cultivated organically since 1995. Located in Rognes near Aix-en-Provence, Clos des Trois Sources is surrounded by woods and, as its name suggests, three water sources. Like Château Beaulieu, it is owned by Pierre Guénant and run in the same meticulous manner. The soils are clay-limestone with stony patches, so yields are low as vigour is reduced. The proximity of water, and the clay in the soil, ensures the vines are protected from hydric stress, so the grapes are able to reach physiological ripeness without the vines shutting down.

A blend of 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Cinsault and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the hand-picked grapes are directly pressed and then fermented at low temperatures of between 13 to 15°C. Such low temperatures ensure the delicate perfumes of the grapes are retained in the finished wine, which has a lovely scent of fresh red fruit that makes it stand apart from other Provençal Rosés, often characterised by a flinty character. On the palate, it is dry and supple with a lovely texture and excellent length.

While smartly packaged, as you’d expect from a Provençal Rosé, the point which distinguishes this from other Provençal Rosés in our list is the organic viticulture in a single vineyard. It is a striking wine of great character and individuality.
