Provence is home to the most elegant and refined Rose’s in the world. Domaine de Rimauresque sits at the foot of the Massif des Maures mountain range, 20 minutes from Toulon. With a unique microclimate, the estate benefits from both the cooling mistral winds and the shade of the mountains above. This shade gives a longer ripening period in the crucial weeks prior to harvest.
Senior winemaker Pierre Duffort has many years of winemaking experience in the Côtes de Provence appellation. Before leading Rimauresq, he directed his family domaine, La Moutete, at nearby Cuers. Since his arrival at Rimauresq, the domaine has won industry-wide recognition for excellence.
