JCB Nº 5 Rosé is selected in honor of my sister Nathalie’s favorite number and her favorite region to visit to inspire and energize her free-spirit – Provence! 

Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

Bright, cantaloupe-peach in color, this wine entices you from the bottle.

Aroma: 

Brilliant, rose-petal pink in color with purple nuances. The nose is delicate with scents of red berries, citrus and spicy white blossoms.

Palate: 

Soft and delectable on the palate with floral notes and flavors of white fruit. Boasts remarkable balance and a fresh finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

Our selection was made in the area around the Montagne Sainte Victoire, a magnificent limestone mountain ridge located east of the town of Aix-en-Provence and celebrated in the paintings of Cézanne. The vines cover the slopes of the Arc valley and are influenced by a continental climate, protected to the south from maritime effects by the Aurélien mountains and the Sainte Baume massif. The stony, well- drained soil that has formed around this massif in addition to a cooler climate yield livelier, better-structured wines with exceptional balance.
