All things rosé
There are great reds and whites to be had in Provence, but rosé wine (which ranges in colour from pale pink to rosy salmon) accounts for 90% of the region’s production.
Rosé has become hugely popular in recent years, and Provence’s blushing blends are capturing the hearts of many wine lovers who agree that it isn’t only a drink for the warmer months. Stephen and Jeany Cronk also fell under the spell of rosé years before they actually decided to dedicate their lives to making it. In 2009, the couple left the suburbs of South-West London with their three young children and settled in the pretty village of Cotignac, about an hour east of Aix-en-Provence. A year later, their goal of creating a top-notch rosé came to fruition with Mirabeau Classic, the first cuvée of Maison Mirabeau’s line of elegantly crafted wines. It was only the beginning.
