This wine lies stylistically between a lighter rosé from Provence and a heavier rosé from the Côtes-du-Rhône. The rosé des Frangins is the creation of a new generation of winemakers. Fresh, easy to drink and balanced, this wine has been unanimously adored since its first vintage.
“LIGHT AND INVIGORATING, THIS ROSÉ WITH ITS TOUCH OF REFRESHING GRAPEFRUIT NOTES WILL BE AN INSTANT SUMMER HIT.”
Bernard Neveu, Head Sommelier of the Bristol - Restaurant Épicure (3 Michelin stars)

Meet the winemakers
The Domaine des Gravennes is run by two brothers. Luc entered into the family business in 2011 after garnering experience in the wine world across 4 different continents. Rémi decided to quit his job as an engineer to rejoin his brother shortly thereafter. Right next to the beautiful Château of Suze-la-Rousse, the two brothers have continued the family tradition of running a winery that is both organic and biodynamic. This tradition was born with their grandparents. Fair warning: they are such great hosts that no one ever wants to leave when they visit.
The rosé des Frangins is a youthful, invigorating wine. The cuvée was created in anticipation of Rémi’s return to the winery. To make this celebratory wine, the young plantings of mourvèdre situated upon the eponymous gravel soil that gives the winery its name (Domaine des Gravennes) make up the majority of the final blend.
Spot: Jeunes Mourvèdres - Young Mourvèdres • Appellation: Côtes-du-Rhône • Grape Variety: Mourvèdre • Parcel Size: 1.2 hectares • Type of Soil: Gravely clay-limestone
