Coteaux d’Aix Wine

Our organic, white Coteaux d’Aix from Domaine Oullières on the edge of the Chaine des Côtes, above the pretty village of Lambesc, has been particularly well received on these shores. The head sommelier at Le Gavroche, David Galetti, has featured it as a table de hôte wine and Guardian wine columnist and food and wine matching expert Fiona Beckett observed that it is: “An intense, fragrant, Vermentino-based white to drink with seafood.” Simon Hoggart, the late and much lamented custodian of the Spectator Wine Club, added his approval advising: “Drink it too cold and you won’t appreciate the flavours of fennel and fresh fruit and herbs, nor will you get the pleasingly oily feel which makes the flavor linger longer.”

The Ambrosio-Collomb family, who have been making wine here for 7 generations, also produce an equally meritorious, coral-pink rosé from a blend of Grenache and Cinsault. Completing a triumvirate that makes this an enviable one-stop shop is an earthy red.
