From The Winery

AIX Rosé is made in the Provence region of France and the winery, Maison Saint Aix, is located an hour east of the historic city of Aix-en-Provence. Maison Saint Aix is situated in the vineyards of a 140-year-old domain. These vineyards are non-irrigated and on a plateau at 1,400 feet above sea level, one of the highest in the region. The Mistral wind keeps the grapes dry and healthy. The soil is clay and limestone, with some sandy plots that are rich in minerals. Maison Saint Aix is passionate about making the best Provence rosé, and as such their grapes are sustainably farmed.

AIX Rosé is produced in the typical Provençal 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 at low temperatures for 5 to 6 hours. Each variety is fermented separately in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 57 degrees for 12 to 16 days, maintaining the aromas. To achieve the beautiful pale pink color Provence rosés are known for, AIX uses cold stabilization. The wine is maintained on the lees in a closed tank with a neutral gas for one week at around 35 degrees. The lees give aromas and great body to the wine. The wine is then aged in a stainless steel tank for 2 to 3 weeks before bottling, resulting in a beautiful rosé that is delicious year-round.

Tasting Notes

“A hypnotizing pale pink color with notes of raspberries, white floral blossoms, and stone fruits. Refreshingly crisp and dry with a mineral finish.”

93 Points Tasting Panel – “From Maison Saint Aix, the Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault grapes for this stunning pink sipper sit on a non-irrigated plateau at 1,400 feet elevation. Key lime, a juicy slice of watermelon, and a steely undertone bring this rosé to life. Creamsicle tones the finish with an inner light.”

90 Points James Suckling – “A medium-bodied fruity rosé. with lots of peach, melon and grapefruit aromas. Round and creamy with a velvety finish. Drink now.”

 90 Points Antonio Galloni – “Pale, shimmering orange. Bright and focused on the nose, displaying fresh red berry, nectarine and orange zest aromas, with floral and mineral overtones. Strawberry and nectarine flavors show good depth and a bracing jolt of juicy acidty. The floral note repeats on the lively finish, which lingers with very good tenacity.”
