AIX Rosé is made in the Provence region of France, just an hour east of the historical city of Aix-en-Provence. The vineyard of AIX consists of 185 acres of vineyard and is one of the largest domaines in the famous AOP Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence. These vineyards are non-irrigated and on a plateau at an elevation of 1,400 feet above sea level. The mistral winds keep the clusters dry and healthy. The soils vary from sandy, chalky soil to limestone and are highly acidic. AIX nurtures its heritage and has a passion and dedication to make the best Provence rosé. As part of this, all of their grapes are sustainably farmed.  

AIX Rosé is produced in the typical Provencale style using the direct pressing method. To avoid oxidation, the grapes are cold soaked and chilled to 46 degrees Fahrenheit. The grape clusters are then destemmed before pressing and are macerated only at low temperatures for 5 to 6 hours. Fermentation is temperature controlled in stainless steel tanks for 12 to 16 days at 57 degrees to keep the maximum fragility in the nose using monocepage fermentation. To get that beautiful pale pink color Provence Rosés are known for, AIX uses cold stabilization. They maintain the must in a closed tank for one week at around 35 degrees with the lees suspended with a neutral gas. The lees give a lot of aromas and a great body to the wine. The wine is then aged in a stainless steel tank for 2 to 3 weeks before bottling resulting in an AIX Rosé that is elegantly tasty and the perfect wine to drink all year long.

Yield at this quality-driven vineyard is kept at a low 1057 G/A, much lower than the maximum of 1585 G/A; these low yielding vines produce concentrated, great quality grapes . AIX Rosé is typically found at only the most chic restaurants and bars, the most exciting events, renowned museums, theaters and galleries, and premium wine merchants.
