Wines of Provence "Domaine de l'Île de Porquerolles"
APPELLATION COTES DE PROVENCE
The Fournier family has developed a quality vineyard: their wine was one of the first to be certified with the Côtes de Provence appellation.
Among their best wines are the BIO rosé, BIO white, and the red.
The Domaine de l'ile de Porquerolles rosé wine is made up of 25% Grenache, 25% Cinsault, 25% Mourvèdre, and 25% Tibouren.
It is characterized by aromas of white peach, raspberry and other exotic fruits. This particular rosé pairs well with sea urchins, shrimp, crustaceans, and grilled white meats.
The Domaine de l'Ile de Porquerolles white wine is derived wholly from the Rolle varietal.
It is characterized by citrus-like flavors with a touch of lemon-honey at the end. It compliments baked white fish, grilled lobster, steamed lobster, and fresh goat cheese.
The Domaine de l'ile de Porquerolles red is composed of Syrah and Grenache.
It is characterized by aromas of red fruits, prunes and fresh violets. A robust and bold wine, it is mildly spicy with hints of black pepper, cloves, and tannins. It accompanies many dishes nicely, especially red meats, saucy poultry dishes, and various types of fresh cheeses.
Tastings can be scheduled year round, but by reservation only.
