 In France, consumption of rosé wines has surpassed that of white wines. In the United States, exports of French rosé wines have increased by 30% in the space of a decade. Rosé has broken new ground, success-
 fully moving away from traditional packaging designs, and is now the favourite wine of millennials, who drink it all year round.
 With a close eye on market trends and the growing interest in fresh, flavoursome and moreish wines, Maison Gabriel Meffre has developed an attractive range of rosés:

                                                    Un Eté en…

                           Like an invitation to travel, the range ‘Un Eté en...’ (A summer in...) offers a chance to
                           discover the finest terroirs of southern France. Spend a summer in… Provence,
                           Occitania  or  the  Mediterranean  with  these  delicious,  silky  and  fruity  rosés,  in
                           packaging that suggests delicateness and refinement.
                           -  Côtes de Provence ou Coteaux d’Aix en Provence

                                                 Côtes de Provence

                           Gabriel Meffre was a visionary. He was one of the first winegrowers in the Rhône
                           Valley to see the potential of Provence and decided to invest in the region as
                           early as 1969, in order to offer a Côtes-de-Provence rosé, alongside his selection
                           of mainly red wines from the Rhône Valley.
                           “Madame” pays tribute to French-style elegance and glamour. Made with vines
                           planted at the foot of the Sainte Victoire mountain ridge, to the east of the town
                           of Aix-en-Provence, the 2020 vintage has an expressive nose of redcurrant and
                           pink grapefruit. Mellow, mineral and fresh in the mouth, it is an ideal companion
                           for convivial gatherings.


                                                  Costières de Nîmes

                           Based on a parcel selection from Château Grand Escalion, this cuvée is a blend
                           of Grenache (55%) on pebbly soil (or ‘galets roulés’) and Syrah (15%) on sandy soil
                           (or ‘safres’), to which we added 30% of white varieties (Vermentino, Roussanne
                           and Grenache Blanc).
                           This unique blend produces a gastronomic wine with a very pale pink robe, an
                           explosive nose of crisp red fruit, and a fruity, ample and fresh mouth.
                           Produced in limited quantities, this cuvée based on plot selection is sold through
                           the On Trade channel.
