St Sidoine specialises in fine, focused Provence rosés with an attractive pale rose petal hue. The emphasis is on delicate, elegant fruit and minerality – the ultimate party wine, and pitch-perfect with sardines or salade niçoise.
it is an old co-operative originally established in 1923, but what distinguishes it today are the very delicate rosés that it specialises in. The soils are poor and stony so that the yields are quite low, but the climate helps. Monsieur Camous, the president of the co-operative, explains, ”…because each afternoon we have the wind from the sea which refreshes the atmosphere, the heat is less …the vines have less stress and the wines have a better equilibrium.”
The rosés are made from a complete mix of Grenache, Cinsault, old Mourvèdre, Carignan, Syrah and even a small amount of Tibouren (an ancient variety brought to Provence when it was first colonised by the Greeks and Romans). The wines are fermented at low temperatures to retain all the freshness and delicate aromas.
