The Chateau Guiot Rosé has an electric pink color, deeper than most Rosés. This wine displays an intense nose of rose petal, bing cherries and ripe strawberries. Supple and harmonious, this refreshing wine is perfect for summer drinking. Enjoy it in any outdoor setting, whether as an aperitif next to the pool or with friends and family during a barbecue.
This estate is energetically run by our great friends Sylvia and François Cornut, who are dedicated to producing super wines in their Provençal surroundings. Located at the mouth of the Rhône River, where the Provence, Rhône and Languedoc regions all join, the Cornut family crafts this incredibly refreshing Rosé.
Sylvia is the winemaker here, but she is always quick to point out- ‘If François brings me good fruit, then I can make good wine.’
François, along with their two sons Alexis & Numa, do all the vineyard work. Their secret to making terrific rose begins in the vineyard at the start of the growing season. They designate parcels for producing fruit exclusively to make Rosé. Younger vines, slightly higher yields and harvesting earlier than for their estate reds are key to the fruit and freshness found in this terrific Rosé.
