There was only one thing missing in Provence before we could complete its full domination of rose wine: offer a sparkling wine. The project was an ambitious one because of precise viticultural specifics of the region, its climate, its terroir, its grape varieties and its wine growing culture. All had to be respected in order to produce bubbles like nowhere else. Thus with a genuine winemaker approach, Saint Andre de Figuiere and approximately forty other wine growers and local enterprises, all supported by the Centre dExperimentation du Rose at Vidauban (Var) contacted the INAO to validate and lay the foundation for a new traditional method- a made to measure method- unique to Provence. The dossier is no being subjected to several years of administrative complexities and meandering which will finally end with the official declaration that Provence can produce its own validated authentic sparkling rose.
The enthusiasm at the prospect of creating a new wine has motivated the troops at the Domaine since 2009 when the first bottles of Atmosphere discreetly appeared in the cellar. Its success was quickly confirmed and official launching was announced for the 2009 vintage. Atmosphere evokes conviviality and is perfect for accompanying those special moments shared with family and friends. A festive wine that will bring a buzz to your parties!
Tasting Notes: This rose wine is finely sparkling with an elegant pale rose color. The nose is fresh with subtle apricot edge to red fruits with distinctive toastiness. This well balanced wine is fresh and well rounded giving a fruity and voluptuous finish.
