One of our longest-standing and most successful relationships from the Languedoc is with Corinne Pastourel, the oenologist and director of the Les Vignerons de Fontès cooperative in the mountaine town of Fontès near Pezenas. Corinne's vibrant personality is immediately intoxicating much like the wines she oversees. We have always been drawn to the "Prieure Saint Hippolyte" bottlings as they represent the freshness and vibrancy of the fruit from the local growers. The rosé is charming on first glance with its nose of strawberry, white flowers and red plums. The palate is mouthfilling and not too delicate. There is an almost serious weight to it but it finishes dry and refreshing, getting you ready for another sip. The Hippolyte is still our best-selling rosé and still under $10 (and under $20 for the 1.5L) making this your year-round pink drink!
