In the heart of the Provence wine region, mid way between Nice and Marseille, Rimauresq takes its name from ”Real Mauresque” the river which flows through the vineyards. The Domaine itself is located at the foot of Notre Dame des Anges in the Massif des Maures mountain range and benefits from a microclimate and three very diverse terroirs (schist, pink sandstone and galets roulés) which ensure that they can produce the very best examples of wines across the three Provence styles. Rimauresq is one of the select group of Côtes de Provence vineyards awarded Cru Classé status in 1955, a classification mirroring that of the great Bordeaux châteaux and based on the quality of the wines and heritage of the properties. The estate is owned by the Wemyss family.
An aromatic full-bodied wine with a long, fresh finish. With white floral characters on the nose and creamy, mineral characters on the palate, this is serious wine almost Meursault like revealing the character of the granitic soil, meticulous vinification and careful barrel aging. Open at least 30 minutes before serving to allow this richly textured, complex wine to breathe
