The word Selladore is harmonious and beautiful. A name which typifies this exquisite rosé, produced at Domaine St Jean de Villecroze in an idyllic corner of Provence. The tractor and the cypress trees stand proud outside the front of the vineyard, depicting the essential balance in viticulture between man and nature. William Chase has been the proud owner of the vineyard since 2015 when he fell in love with the estate, nestled in the hills of Provence. A short drive from St Tropez and the iconic Côte d’Azur, the domaine spans 80 hectares, comprising vineyards, olive groves and wild woodland. The vineyard hosts classic Provençal varieties of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Vermentino. Head winemaker Dale Clarke adopts an ethos of sustainability with a tireless commitment to quality throughout the process.
The wine has an enticing nose which exudes stone fruit and citrus fruit aromas. An enveloping silky texture is balanced with refreshing acidity and bone-dry flavours of peaches and grapefruits. The long lingering finish is perfectly matched with a warm goats cheese salad, grilled seafood or savoured on its own.
