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.
The nose is inviting with wonderful redcurrant, plum and blackberry aromas with hints of black pepper. The palate has more concentrated fruit blackberry, redcurrant and tart blackcurrants, a velvety mouthfeel and structure as well as freshness and a tasty chewy texture. The style is warm and generous but with a deftness of touch adding elegance and balance to the rich fruit.
