Estate Notes

Château la Martinette Rollier 2016 is a classic Provencal Rosé; full-flavoured, yet refined, and named after the brightly plumed migratory Rollier bird that visits this stunning estate shortly after bud burst.

La Martinette is beautifully set in 300 hectares of meadows, woodland and vines in Lorgues. Dating back to 1620, it is one of the oldest wineries in the region, which has undergone a transformation since the injection of capital in 2011.

Over one-third of the vines have been up-rooted, leaving just twenty hectares of the best vines on wonderful clay-limestone soil. Grapes for the Rollier are treated to a slow, delicate pressing and matured on their lees for four months to add complexity to this wonderful style.

Reviews

Lovely pale salmon colour. Intense nose with stone fruits, citrus bergamot, grapefruit and boxwood. Crisp and fresh in the mouth, juicy, yet deliciously dry Provence style, with concentrated grapefruit and pear balanced by underlying minerality and iodine. Finishes long. A great food wine.
