History

Château La Gordonne has always had wide appeal. In the 1st century BC, the Romans set up on the site to take advantage of its vines & its wines. In 1300, the Carthusians from the La Verne monastery began working the vineyard. The estate was planted with vines & olive trees, and took its name from Conseiller de Gourdon, who owned it from 1650 to 1663. In 1663, the Conseiller de Dedons, Lord of Pierrefeu, bought part of the Aurran property known as known as `La Gordonne' & its house, vines, and olive trees.


Regional Information

Provençal vineyards are conditioned by their climate, characterised by low rainfall & the mistral, a strong north wind that purifies the atmosphere & limits parasites. Planting density (2.5 m' per vine) is suited to the soil's moisture potential. The vines are pruned short, the double cordon technique, to ensure even distribution of the bunches to guarantee the concentration. Due to the Mediterranean climate, the soils are very low in organic matter, a specific characteristic of Provençal terroir.


Current Vintage

Vinification Details

Château La Gordonne has harvested all of its grapes at night using machines for 20 years. In 2008 some grapes began to be harvested by hand. Daytime temperatures exceed 35°C in the shade of the vine leaves. In August & September the Mediterranean climate helps the grapes soak up sunlight to stock up on complex fruity, floral, & spicy flavours. At night temperatures drop below 20°C, these notes take on a more sophisticated nature. The grapes cool & their flavours are naturally protected from oxidation.


Producer

To be enjoyed with Mediterranean cuisine, a bourride, a rockfish bouillabaisse, meat and cheese. This Rosé also goes well with spicy foods.

Great value Rose

Perfectly good wine for summer garden chilling with friends or to take when invited to a bbq. Enjoyable but not refined. Will stock up when on offer. Thumbs up!

wonderful rose

Im adding my review to the magnum purely because I chose to buy this wine in magnums. I believe its the best size when sharing with others and during the summer months, thank goodness, were socialising more. This rose wine has been uniformly smooth, light and just delicious. Ive served it to a few at home and to ten or more at the Regatta and have received consistently unanimously high scores. My only disappointment is that the magnum size seems to have disappeared! As I think the Rose is more a summer wine and that is when we tend to get together and genuinely enjoy being part of a group, Im disappointed Ocado has run out of the magnums.
