Baron M Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Rosé

Baron M

I have found myself buying another bottle of Baron Maxime (or Baron M for short) as I walked past it at Costco this week. For the price, I felt it was just rude not to.

The Baron Maxime and the Château de Beaupré ranges are part of the group of labels made by Baron Maxime Double. The first wines were made by the Double family at the Chateau in the 1890s after Emile Double planted that first vineyard. Therefore, it is unsurprising that the wines of Château de Beaupré are all about showcasing the best of the region. This leaves space for the multi-region Baron Maxime range to focus on wine style.

The Baron M rosé is a blend of Provencal stalwarts of predominantly Grenache (70%) and Carignan (20%) with an addition of Cabernet Sauvignon. Baron ‘M’s’ pale and delicate pink hue has a bronzed shimmer. Aromas of raspberry, lavender, cream and spice also have a light smokiness. Don’t serve this wine too cold as the crunchy acid takes the limelight rather than the fruit. Enjoy with or without food. It goes down well with a lunch of quiche and salad or as a sundowner with a simple bowl of olives and spicy nuts.

(And …. it is a memorable label too!)

Quickie review « A pale and dry pink with aromas evocative of the South of France, berries and cream with a sprig of lavender and spice. »
