Bieler Pere et Fils ''Sabine'' Rose 2019 - Provence, France
Varietals: Syrah, Vermentino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, and Grenache
The wine naturally is a beautiful balance between red fruit and acid structure, without either element overpowering the other. Savory and citrus notes are framed by a mineral core.
In 1992, Philippe Bieler, founded Chateau Routas in Coteaux Varois – a small appellation in the middle of Provence. The winery focused on Grenache based red blends and rosé. It is there, starting in 1998, that his son Charles learned the wine business and started producing wine. In 2005, there was a great opportunity to sell the winery and estate and his father took it. The two founded Bieler Père et Fils that same year and have never looked back. It’s truly breathtaking to see how far the rosé market in America has developed from those challenging early days.
