One of my favourite stories in some of the national papers last year was the potential shortage of Provence Rosé. If ever there was a ‘First World Problem’ headline that surely gets the prize! The truth is though that rosé, and in particular Provence Rosé, has seen remarkable growth in sales over the last few years and if we have another warm summer then we may well see those headlines repeated! However, for now, and with Easter almost upon us and the first signs of spring, the 2018 vintage has arrived. Time to celebrate!
Which brings me to AIX Rosé (pronounced “ex”) which in recent years has been established as one of the most definitive Provence rose wines.
A classic Provencal blend of Grenache, Syrah & Cinsault, AIX has an attractive pale salmon colour. Fresh and fragrant, it entices with delicately floral and strawberry aromas. The cool fermentation has produced lively and refreshing flavours of watermelon, raspberry and strawberry, all making for a real crowd-pleaser.
And we are delighted to offer a ‘one-off’ special introductory price to welcome the new vintage… only whilst our initial order stocks last 😎

For anyone feeling particularly generous towards their party guests this summer, what could be better than one of the large formats? Magnums will be arriving shortly and AIX is also available in everything up to, and including, 15 litre Nebuchanezzar (equivalent to 20 standard bottles).
