Provence

Description

Founded by Templar knights in the 13th century, Bargemone has a proud viticultural heritage, and is among the foremost estates of the Coteaux d’Aix, a small fine wine district inside the larger Appellation of Provençe. A perennial best-seller for HPS, 2/3 of its production is dedicated to the dry rosé for which Provençe is famous.

Tasting Notes: This classic, unoaked red is rich, ripe, and spicy, offering the essence of Provence with its layers of raspberry/blackberry fruit, light garrigue notes, soft, plush tannins, and long, lingering finish.

Serve With: Enjoy with a wide range of grilled meats, vegetables, and Provence inspired cuisine.
