The Wine

A wonderful Rose from the Côtes du Rhône region of France. Produced by Laudun Chusclan Vignerons. Dry, light and crisp with a hint of strawberry and melon.

The Vineyard

The Prieurs de St. Julien Rosé is produced by one of the 250 cooperative partners of Laudun Chusclan Vignerons, a key player in the Rhone Valley of Southern France. Covering over 3,000 hectares, the Laudun-Chusclan vineyards are among the largest on the right bank of the Rhone and boast an exceptional array of terroirs. Bordered by the course of several rivers, the vines thrive on the mountain terraces on the right bank of the Rhone and enjoy a moderate mediterranean climate.  This geographical feature gives rise to wines with surprising freshness, especially the St.Julien Rosé.  Of the total production of 140,000 HL of wine, 8000 HL is dedicated to Rosé.

The winemaker brings out the best of the great Cotes du Rhone grape varieties by monitoring each vineyard plot, and individualized vinification resulting in distinctive wines.
