Provence, in south-eastern France, produces some of the best, most delicate rosés in the world. In the foothills of Mont Sainte Victoire where Paul Cézanne lived & found inspiration, the Sumeire family has thrived since the 13th century. This magical place is shielded from northern winds, with abundant sunshine and chalky soil regulating temperatures and helping to create a unique microclimate. The Sumeires added Château Maupague to their collection of properties in 1991. Not far from the Rhône, Provence uses many of the same grapes, and this one is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Cinsault. Rosé’s with a majority of Grenache are rare for the region and result in a much more complex wine that transcends the appellation. The Cabaret cuvée is the property's entry level wine and best value. It differs from the top cuvées, in that it comes from the younger vines, uses part machine and part hand harvesting, and has slightly higher yields (60 hl/ha is still quite low for wines at this price). The color is pale and delicate, and the bouquet and palate are floral with a subtle touch of strawberry and peach.
