Aix-en-Provence and its surrounding hills are home to many fantastic producers of Rosé wines. At Château Paradis nestling on the slopes to the north of this historic town they hand make a delicious Provençal rosé which is presented in smart contemporary packaging. It is made by the saignée method of 'bleeding' the fermenting juice from the skins to preserve delicacy and character whilst giving a lovely salmon pink colour. Elegant and dry with aromatic fruit aromas derived from a vibrant blend of Cabernet and Syrah this really delivers the 'local' Rose so adored and enjoyed by the English when on summer holidays in the South of France.
Chateau Paradis is situated just north of the town of Aix-en-Provence, this picturesque and historic town is the gateway to the South of France. The Domain was purchased and thoroughly restored in 2003 by Philippe and Juliette Deschamps and it sits among the rolling hills and rocky outcrops. New vineyard plantings and cellar investment have ensured that the recent vintages have really shone and they have been well rated by the Guide Hachette.
