Grenache Noir 34%, Cinsault 33%, Mourvedre 10% 13% - cork Pure salmon-pink in colour with an appealing herb-spiked and fruity nose. The palate is finely balanced; quite rich, spicy red fruit is accented with bright acidity and a cleansing, sapid finish. This is a lovely expression of the grapes and of the land. In the heart of the Provence wine region, mid way between Nice and Marseille, Rimauresq takes its name from ''Real Mauresque'' the river which flows through the vineyards. The Domaine itself is located at the foot of Notre Dame des Anges in the Massif des Maures mountain range and benefits from a microclimate and three very diverse terroirs (schist, pink sandstone and galets roulés) which ensure that they can produce the very best examples of wines across the three Provence styles. Rimauresq is one of the select group of Côtes de Provence vineyards awarded Cru Classé status in 1955, a classification mirroring that of the great Bordeaux châteaux and based on the quality of the wines and heritage of the properties. The estate is owned by the Wemyss family (who also have a stake in Fonty's Pool in Western Australia) and Pierre Duffort runs the winemaking team producing characterful whites from Rolle (also known as Vermentino), floral scented rosés from a blend of Cinsault, Tribouren and Mourvèdre and weighty, yet elegant reds with a firm structure and real terroir character from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The premium range labelled 'R' is sourced from older vines which give extra depth and minerality to the wines. Website: www.rimauresq.fr
