Description

Bargemone is among the foremost estates of the Coteaux d’Aix appellation of Provence. A benchmark producer of the delicious, dry rosé for which Provence is famous, the Commanderie was founded by Templar knights in the 13th century, and is home to a proud viticultural tradition and more than 160 acres of sustainably grown vineyards.

Tasting Notes: Labeled Cuvée Marina, Bargemone’s prestige bottlings are intense wines of exceptional complexity, balance and finesse. This crisp, bone dry rosé offers great freshness, with aromas of red fruit, exotic spice, and light floral notes.

Serve With: Enjoyable on its own, it can also stand up to a wide range of American, international, and Provence inspired cuisine.
