Made by the owners of Château Talbot, our excellent L'Oratoire Provence rosé from Domaine Saint Andrieu has grown in popularity with our customers in recent years, to the point where a six-bottle case slung under the arm was in danger becoming a fashion accessory for visitors to Aldeburgh last summer!
The latest 2021 release is paler, fresher and slightly 'cooler' than the preceding two vintages. It's the kind of vintage we love and we are really looking forward to it arriving in May. Here is our (now-traditional) pre-landing offer, always the most advantageous way to buy your stocks for the summer ahead, at just £85 per dozen in bond when you buy 3+ cases.
This year for the first time, we also tasted samples of the domaine's 2020 Blanc and 2017 Rouge, both made in much smaller quantities and hard to come by. The red is a blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, matured in barrels previously used at Talbot. The white is from Rolle, the Provencal name for Vermentino, found all around this part of the Mediterranean. Do take a look at the notes below and maybe add some to your rosé order.
Offered pre-landing, expected May 2022.
