CHANEL, yes you read that correctly, CHANEL have entered the Rosé market with an absolutely stunning organic Rosé made on the tiny island of Porquerolles just of the coast of Saint-Tropez
CHANEL, are not new to wine, having owned estates in Bordeaux for almost 30 years now, and have established themselves as one of the finest producers in Bordeaux with some of the most highly sought after estates in Margaux and Saint Emilion.
The blend of grapes in the Domaine de l’Ile rosé is made up of Grenache, Mouvèdre, Cinsault, Syrah and Tibouren. These traditional Mediterranean grape varieties express all the uniqueness and insularity of the Domaine de l’Ile wines. Winemaker Nicolas Audebert describes the effect they have on the blend: “On dry and stony soils, enduring the wind, gorged with sun, the Grenache brings generosity to the blend, a reminder of the sweetness of local life. The Mourvèdre likes to watch the sea. It affirms all its character here and adds its grains of spice. A window opens on the pine forest. The white flesh fruits of Cinsault combine with the freshness and crispness of Syrah. As for the Tibouren, authentic Provençal, it is at home here, deploying its nobility on these shale soils.”
THE ISLAND OF PORQUEROLLES
This paradise island was acquired by François-Joseph Fournier in 1910 and given as a wedding gift to his beautiful young wife, Sylvia. Under their visionary and watchful eye, the island affirmed its agricultural character as vines were planted on its gentle slopes. In 1957, the island was divided up between the four Fournier daughters with each one receiving a plain. Three of them progressively sold their inheritance to the French Government, but Lélia le Ber, born Fournier, fought to keep her land and replanted vines on the Brégançonnet plain. She passed on the estate to her son, Sébastien Le Ber, who perpetuated the family business and developed the vineyard that is symbolic of the island. 2019, after many fulfilling years as a wine producer and a sailor, Sébastien entrusted this heritage to CHANEL, thereby opening a new chapter in the story of Domaine de l’Ile.
