How Enjoy a rosé ribs ?
Rosé wine can be enjoyed on many occasions: as an aperitif, during a meal, to accompany the dessert, in the kitchen ... The Côtes de Provence is an AOC rosé wine, controlled designation of origin, IGP or AOP, Delicate , filled with freshness and finesse that is essential thanks to its fruit aromas. It comes from grape varieties such as Cabernet-Sauvignon, Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Syrah, etc., and mainly produced in the vineyards and terroirs of Var and Bouches-du-Rhône. Like any large wine, the tasting of a rosé coast of Provence must respect some indications concerning its conservation, the service temperature, or the tasting glass. The castle of Bern tells you more.
The conservation of the rosé coast of Provence
The rosé wine Côtes de Provence is mainly young. When he gets older, this fruity country wine loses her pretty dress, takes a paler color and his aromas eclipse. Often obtained by pressing method, he then does not have the same structure as a rosy guard, and does not contain tannins necessary for a long conservation and does not have a fairly high acidity.
However, in recent years, the Côtes de Provence Rosé has also come from a vinification of bleeding, which gives it a more or less dark color, from raspberry flesh. (Bertrand link?) We can consume this wine within 2 years or 3 depending on its vintage. Through these guard rosés, the aromatic palette is still widening, offering a diversification of pleasures.
Like white wine or red wine, the aging of the rosé wine from Provence takes place in a cellar, with a temperature between 10 and 14 ° C. We recommend a room without light, ventilated, without vibration and slightly damp. After opening, pink wines are consumed within 4 to 5 days, otherwise aromatic nuances tend to evaporate, and its fruit notes are falling.
A coast of Provence rosé is consumed at a rather cool temperature: between 8 and 10 ° C, or even 14 ° C to the maximum. We advise to open the bottle just when serving for more taste. Before serving it, put it in the refrigerator, otherwise an ice bucket will be enough to keep it cool or when it is very hot. It is also possible to put it in the freezer, but not too long so that it is iced! It is also said that rosé wine is drunk “swimming pool”, that is to say with a few ice cubes in the glass. For the little extra: put slightly frozen grapes to refresh the wine served, instead of ice cubes. Guaranteed effect!
In which glass to taste a ribs of Provence rosé?
To taste a rosé ribs, above all you recommend a glass of transparent wine. The glass can give more light to the wine and will allow you to admire your pretty dress and its colors. Wine glass brings more flavor and a much more intense taste experience, its taste will be even more exhilarating.
We recommend a drink on foot, such as a balloon glass or a calyx glass. This shape of glass allows the wine not to be heated by handling.
The opening of the glass is also important to rekindle the taste buds and enhance the aromas. Inao wine glass (National Institute of Origin Appellations) is recommended for tasting. It is high, narrow, and welcomes the scents of wine much better, more easily keeps volatile and flavors. Its pretty tulip shape brings more oxygenation to wine and allows ventilation of the drink.
Like red wines and white wines, the tasting of a rosé coast of Provence must respect some rules related to conservation and service temperature. Coming from a vineyard rich in grape variety, the Côtes de Provence du Château de Berne offers you an extraordinary aromatic moment.
