What is it?
Côtes de Provence wines refer to a region of Provence that stretches along the French Riviera from Marseille to Nice. 80% of the wines produced in Provence are rosé, so the majority of Côtes de Provence wines are rosé, which are generally dry and fruity with aromas of grapefruit. The next most prolific wine produced in the region is red, which are either quite strong or gentle, depending on the quality of the soil, the type of grape and the harvest. Strong Côtes de Provence reds go well with warm, hearty foods like osso bucco and stews.
