Sherlocks Wine Merchant Buckhead — Our New Favorite Rose

Domaine du Deffends – Coteaux Varois en Provence

“Domaine du Deffends is situated in the foothills of Monts Auréliens running along the ancient Roman road of the same name. The soil is chalky, arid and porous. Thanks to its gentle incline and privileged south-eastern orientation, the du Deffends vineyard has never suffered the effects of frost. Production is kept deliberately low by aggressive pruning and, if necessary, early harvesting of the grapes.”

“The Domaine is a small family business led by a spirited team of aficionados. We strive to take full advantage of the superior soil and climate through a rigorous commitment to quality. In doing so, we offer wine enthusiasts the assurance of a product that goes directly from our cellar to the table without manipulating or tampering with the contents in any way.” – deffends.com

Xavier and I both agree…”Along with the Triennes, best rose from the 2010 vintage!”

2010 Domaine du Deffends “Rose d’une Nuit” $19.99

Brendan & Xavier’s Notes  Picture perfect salmon color followed by aromas of pomegranate, wild raspberries, orange blossom and wet stones.  Mouth coating, dry and very persistent with flavors similar to the nose.  Beautifully balanced with a silky texture that is irresistible.  A rose lover’s dream come true and just in time for the end of summer!
