Region

The appellation of Côtes de Provence covers a wide swathe of Provençal vineyard from Aix east to Cannes. Although much of the production is of dry rosé wine made from Cinsault, Carignan, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, it does also cover red and white wines.

Producer

The Château Paradis estate covers 185 acres in the northern part of Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence, in the village of Le Puy Sainte Réparade. The estate is in the midst of a range of legendary landscapes, which the famous painters of Provence used to depict. The property was created by Jacques Héon (founder of Jacques’ Wein-Depot), who was charmed by the landscape. An old plot of vines called “Paradis” gave its name to the vineyard. The property became a winery in 2003 thanks to Philippe and Juliette Deschamps, who built a cellar and restored the bastide. Since 2011 the Thiéblin family, proud of their Provençal heritage, has been focused on bringing out the best in the estate. In 2012 they extended the vineyard with 123 additional acres. These 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 (France`s top wine guide).
Tasting Notes
Aix-en-Provence and its surrounding hills are home to many fantastic producers of rose wines. Made from a traditional blend of Syrah, Mourvedre and Rolle (Vermentino) the grapes are hand harvested and cooled before pressing to preserve aromas and colour. Terre des Anges is a luxurious and elegant rose, partical wood fermentation on the Mourvedre gives texture and richness which is balanced by a fresh acidity and ripe fruit flavours of strawberries, red cherries and peach.
Food
Serve with cold meats, smoked salmon, bouillabaise and grilled sardines.
