AIX Provence Rosé, France, 2017 - May 2018 Wine of the Month

''All rosés are equal but some rosés are more equal than others'' (George Orwell)

This month we bring you AIX Rosé, a stunning gold award winning premium Provence rosé made with dedication and passion - the perfect wine to drink with friends and family all day long!


AIX Provence Rosé, France, 2017

The Wine


AIX is a wine for people who enjoy life; for people who enjoy celebrating in style. It is the wine that brings people together to share a glass, a meal, a story, a moment - an affordable everyday little luxury.


Symbolised by the seal of two Mandarin ducks, ''AIX Galericulata'' in Latin, AIX is inspired by the same simple beauty of sharing one's life with another. Dramatic and full of colour, these birds that remain together for life reflect great devotion and generosity of spirit. You'll find the essence of this generosity cast back into every bottle of AIX Rosé.


Created using 30% of rosé bleeding and 70% direct pressing, the softest hint of Carignan is added to the classical Provence blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault to give the 2016 vintage an even more profound depth. Fermented between a cool 11 and 13 degrees Celsius, AIX Rosé is elegant, generous and tasty and the perfect wine to drink all day long.


Hard work and significant investments contributed to the creation of AIX, but it was the passion and promise to favour quality above all that has made the dream of this beautiful rosé a reality for wine lovers the world over.


The Winery


AIX Rosé is made in the Provence region of France, just an hour North-East from the historical city of Aix-en-Provence. The Provence region is known for making the best rosés in the world. From the renowned appellation 'AOP Coteaux d'Aix en Provence', AIX nurtures its heritage and has a passion and dedication to make the best Provence rosé.


Location is crucial and conditions in Provence are perfect for making beautiful wine. From mineral rich soils to an ideal elevation; from warm days and cool nights to mistral winds that dry vines on dewy mornings, the AOP Coteaux d’Aix en Provence was made for harvesting the indefectible blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault that combine to build the rich, spicy notes of AIX Rosé.


Tasting Notes

A fragrant and well balanced wine, AIX's hypnotising salmon pink colour reveals a fruity freshness and premium rosé. The nose is fresh and fragrant, delicate yet youthful and offers classy notes of watermelon, strawberries and flowers. An impressive rosé which is drinking at its best now.


Available in 75cl, Magnums and Jeroboams.
