Biodynamic viticulture is of surprising rarity in the Provence region given the ideal sunny and windy conditions; one outstanding practitioner is the tiny property of Domaine les Fouques, run by Yves Gros, with the wine made by daughter Christelle. Guinea fowl and chickens are also farmed here. At a mere 17 hectares and in a stunning setting, a visit here offers a somewhat mystical quality.

These are terroir wines, make no mistake. There are consistencies of quality and style (the peach, melon and slate as the site’s signature) with wines transparent of vintage and place – sound like great Burgundy, Barolo or Mosel? This serious and magnificent producer challenges many perceptions and norms of rosé.

80% Grenache, 20% Cinsault.

This rosé displays a wonderfully full fruited and fleshy appeal, showing more density and textural layering than many other Provence counterparts.  The low intervention winemaking throws elements of funk and texture but in a very good way, adding to the profile of peach, melon and wild strawberries.  An energetic wine.
