2016 Bieler Père et Fils Cuvée Sabine Rosé (Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence)
90 Points! - Vinous
As the oldest wine growing area in France and the world’s largest rosé specialty
region, Provence is the gold standard in rosé. There are 8 different appellations in
Provence but only 3 that you need to know: Cotes de Provence, Aix-en-Provence,
and Bandol. Most of the biggest rosé producers are in the Cotes de Provence AOC,
where, generally speaking, the warmest growing regions in the flats of Provence
produce higher yields and harvests tend to be quite early. For our part, we instead
bet on the cooler, more rugged and later ripening area in the hills around Aix-en-
Provence in a generally warming climate. The cooler days and nights in Aix-en-
Provence means that we pick on average 2 weeks later than Cotes de Provence,
allowing for a more gentle ripening and more natural acidity, two absolutely
critical attributes to make the kind of rosé we think is best.
The classic Provence Rosé profile is what every serious winemaker around the
world attempts to mimic and for good reason. Our goal is always to find the
delicate balance between floral, herbal, wild red fruit (not overly ripe) and acid.
Most years, one aspect or another dominates so we work on enhancing the other
qualities, but that was not this year. In 2016, the fruit naturally found a beautiful
balance between red fruit and the acid structure without either overpowering
each other, or the savory, citrus and mineral core. We’ve also made big advances
in vineyard management and huge investments in presses and tanks in the
winery. And, while we don’t own the vineyards that our fruit comes from, we
have been working with these same growers from the beginning and collaborate
closely as if we were partners in each other’s business.
The blend is the following:
Grenache 52%, Syrah 23%, Cabernet Sauvignon 14%, Cinsault 8%, Rolle 3%.
